"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?"
AFRAID OF THE HOMELESS
AFRAID OF BEING HOMELESS?
Afraid of fear?Of economic insecurity?
Afraid of not making the rent?the mortgage?the bills?
Divorced?Sacked?With health problems severe as PTSD?
Welcome to the many fold issues that separate us economically
so some are cared for ,but too many are not.Blame and guilt fail us.
Criminalizing those homeless fails us.Anger fails us.
Every bird falls from the sky at some time in their winged life
Do not blame the bird.Do not blame the sky
"Treat all people with grace and kindness"
Homeless but Not FriendlessSmartphones can be one of the few lifelines for those who have little. So a Facebook group for homeless people makes sense, even if it may strike some as unexpected. It includes nurses, doctors and social workers who are there to help. The ground rules are simple: Treat people with grace and kindness.
