Landlord - Tenant In Phoenix

Numb with the indifference of uncaring, cold-hearted
people, playing God with government money.
Deciding to advise one not to pay rent, yet won't
put it down in writing - won't commit to telling the
Leaving a family of four stranded with no where to go.
A kind-hearted neighbor offers her vacant house to
move into - rent and security to be paid by the city
of Phoenix - only no one will answer or even return
calls so they can settle in for the holidays.
Northeast justice court - it's judge - ordered them
to move out by 1 p.m. the next day - not even giving
them 24 hours - and they were disabled!
Thanks to a kind-hearted neighbor offering to rent
her home, and other neighbors, with teenage daughters,
helping them to move everything out and into the house
next door.
Still nothing - no calls - from the city of Phoenix, Landlord/Tenant and Thanksgiving is over.
They had no gas or electric to cook with or keep warm,
but city employees had a nice vacation - never once
thinking of them or how they were faring without their promised help.
Numb from the indifference of uncaring cold-hearted
people, they are still alone in their misery, with no
hopes in sight and Christmas is around the corner.
All thanks to the city of Phoenix.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
