The Homeless poet, Gargling, gifts us with a poetic response to an article in the Evening Standard in London, UK. Please share…

Author: John Fioravanti

I'm a retired History teacher (35 years), husband, father of three, grandfather of three. My wife, Anne, and I became business partners in December 2013 and launched our own publishing company, Fiora Books (, to publish my books. We have been married since 1973 and hope our joint business venture will be as successful as our marriage.

  1. I’m both saddened and uplifted by our Homeless sisters and brothers, John. They live in anguish and degradation, yet their spirits persist in creating. This is what I shared on Gallybloggers:

    My heart breaks every time I read how the power elite steal from the masses, heartless and condescending in their avaricious pursuits. Our Republican Congress here in the U.S. just passed legislation that will take $300 billion from older and sicker people who need health insurance, and give that money to corporations and the wealthy as tax cuts. I am among millions who will be adversely affected by this. The roof over my head is precarious at best. But while I still have its leaky veneer above me, I refuse to allow those who callously trade lives for money to addle my mind or dampen my spirit. My heart and prayers are with my sisters and brothers who make their lives on the streets. While I still can, I will hold the dream of prosperity for us all 💜💜💜
