The Ghost of Tom Joad


I know it’s hard out there now, people living of soup crackers and ketchup packages.  I’ve been there too, day to day. Wondering if I wouldn’t put a knife to my throat cause I didn’t have gas in the tank or a hope for a place to sleep.

It’s hard for all the working folk out there that have been abandoned. I happen to work for one of those mega corps.  I don’t build bombers or death planes. But the guys that pay my rent do.

It’s hard for me, one that’s been in your shoes.  To just sit and do nothing, I give what I can. But that’s local.

For the rest of you please enjoy. Bruce and Tom.

  1. I absolutely share your sentiments Bob. I know our hearts are in the right place, but that doesn’t do much to remove the sense of helplessness we feel in a world where the moral lines have been so badly smeared around. Take care my friend.
