No Brainer!

Acrostic poem in response to the Daily Prompt Obvious

Out of the taxman's reach, Midas King's offshore stash
Very soon, he was the richest man
In the land. Knowing as a patriot that he
Owed his country everything and determined to
Upset his harshest critics, he founded a chain of
Schools for training experts in tax avoidance.

    1. Thanks. I was thinking of Private Finance Initiative (PFI) institutions, where the government uses tax money to subsidise and underwrite the contract at little risk to the private partner, who gets win-win.These ‘public benefactors’ can then present – and perhaps believe – themselves to be patriotic philanthropists. Hence, from their point of view, No Brainer!
