No Brainer!

Acrostic poem in response to the Daily Prompt Obvious

Out of the taxman's reach, Midas King's offshore stash
Ballooned!
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!
