If it's rainin
Turn yer umbrella upside down
Those are pennies from heaven
Soakin yer ragged butt.
When all seems lost
Take a walk
Be aware of the birds singing
Notice those grey clouds, and that little ray of sunshine peeking through.
Shining softly on some passed out derelic.
And say "At least I'm not him"
When pain has you pacing the floor
Turn on the shopping network
Notice the number of folks who already paid too much
For that elephant leg umbrella stand
Know in your heart
How many don't even have a life to lose.
When everyone about you
Misjudges and misunderstands you
Don't feel downhearted
Justice may provail
They just may get their first Cluster tomorrow.
When it seems like social justice
Has been voted into the toilet
A lot of homeless wretchs
Choose that life.
Giving to somone
Is only something you can do
When you get yer shit together.
And the only way
To get yer shit together
Is by giving to someone
Author "Without a Clue"
and then I Quote
"And you still can hear me singin
to the people who don't listen
to the things that I am sayin
someones gonna hear
And I guess I'll die explainin
how the things that they complain about
are things they could be changin
someones gonna care.
I was born a lonely singer
and I'm bound to die the same
But I've gotta feed the hunger in my soul.
And if I never have a nickel
I won't ever die ashamed
Cause I don't believe that noone wants to know"
Hippy Thanksgiving to you Terry S.
