Uncle Sam

Greetings Uncle
We’ve never met
but I’ve heard a lot about you
A lot of people in the United States love you
while others wish you never were born
You’re America’s Uncle
It’s hard to believe you’re 210 years old
and that you were born in the war of 1812
What’s your secret to living a long life?
I would like to know
You just don’t age
I’m also aiming to be a Centenarian
210 is a hard number to beat though
You love collecting taxes…
