A Rose By Any Other Name

Is it the name that is your enemy?
Those few words ‘Resource Super Profits Tax?’
Is it ‘Profits’ that does not say it well?
Perhaps ‘Super’ – or any other part
Put forward by that man?    O, choose some other name!
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name will smell as sweet;
‘Super Profits’ if not so crudely named
Would keep its dear perfection and still owe,
Without that title, much to us. Change the name!
And for that change still pay a ‘Rental’ tax.
Then leave me be!

Patriciawa, 10/04/13, Thanks for reminding me of this one! I’d forgotten it entirely! I must look at events around that time again to see what specifically prompted those particular lines.
