A poem by Tom W.

Restless legs, sleepless nights
we got stuff
that’ll set you right.

But if you use
a natural cure
We’ll ban ’em all, rest assured

Sore throat or heart attack
This lil pill
will get you back on track

You say our stuffs bad
and you go astray
We’ll put our guys in the FDA.

Side effects include
dizzyness, suicidal mood
Difficulty catching your breath
and in some cases…..Death.

With our high tech
we can feed the planet
Take a big bite of our pomegranate.

If our GMO contaminates your crops
We’ll sue your ass
and send in the black ops.

If your’e feeling down
and a bit depressed
Take our cure, and you’ll be at your best.

If you sue us cuz
you get sick from our wares
The judge and Jury has the controlling shares

Side effects include
dizzyness, suicidal mood
Difficulty catching your breath
and in some cases…..Death



a poem by Tom W.

They gather in secret
behind closed doors
And decide which leaders
will be their whores.

Which senator will
be paid off
What governer will
feed at their trough.

you think you know who they
They think the big wigs
are the 99%

They ruled that they all
have a soul.
But they profit off the
planned debt hole.

Hub City Empty Bowls  January 26th, 2012

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.  The 2012 recipient  is TOTAL Ministries, assisting families in Spartanburg County who are facing a financial crisis.

Occupy Spartanburg members have volunteered to help serve/clean etc. that night.
