Archangel Michael slays demon
Parasite to this host called “Society”
Stigmatized as the Anonymous
Plague the public with the audacity to “Ask”
“Do you have or Can I have”
Your money and leftovers….
Isn’t that what they consider us
Seasoned with debris, laying on cement pavements
For us the hardest season is winter
But the people who stereotype us are the coldest ever
Assumed reasons for our conditions
We are metropolitan exclusions
Write us off… the streets
Implement public policies
Criminalize us for ruining the scenery
Occupy land use as our bedding
Tenants of public space, eminent domain
Lack resources, so we do what we can to be self-sustained
We are people who are homeless
Doesn’t mean that we are not human
But to society we are referred to everything that is offensive
If we wasn’t why do lawmakers make laws to apprehend us
All we have left is our dignity
And we fight for that each day
Despite the stares and rude comments
as the public walk pass as if were not even there
but don’t get us wrong, I know some care
Menu for today is bitten off sandwiches
This isn’t the life that We chose
Do you hear the cry of the Wanderers
with no fixed abode…

Then, this sailed in:
Thank you for publishing Donnelly’s letter that appeared in The Key West Citizen, “Eimers’ death deserves independent investigation”. It dawned on me that a number of serious mishaps have occurred on Chief Lee’s watch. The latest being the alleged child molestation charge against one of Lee’s officers.
Who hired this chief and why hasn’t anyone called upon him to give a full account of the systemic problems that continue in his department? It appears that he is going to be an extremely costly liability for the citizens of Key West.

Thanks for returning my phone call today.As I indicated on the phone, a number of us are in awe at the magnitude of a construction project about to take place on Big Pine Key, and the potential implications of the project. Our questions immediately turn to who is the permitting authority, and what authority do they have to issue permits that will affect Federal Refuge property?At question are 42 injection wells to be permitted on Big Pine Key, the heart of the Key Deer Refuge. I have coordinates on the proposed location of 18 of these wells and have reason to believe another 24 are in the pipeline. These are injection wells 60 feet deep by 24 inches in diameter.
As trenches are dug for this project, pumps will evacuate the ground water and force it into the injection wells.
Our concern is that millions of gallons of fresh water will be removed from the shallow fresh-water lens on Big Pine and pumped deep into the ground. It will be lost to mix with salt water. The potential exists to evacuate the fresh water lens on Big Pine replacing it with salt water. This fresh water lens is what supports the variety of life on Big Pine — deer, rabbits, mice, birds, alligators and so on. It is the reason the Key Deer have survived on Big Pine since the last Ice Age, 14,000 years ago, and we are going to mess with it.
The lens on Big Pine Key holds 2 to 3 million gallons of fresh water. If this project pumps it dry, how long will it take to recharge, and how does fresh water dependent life survive?
From another angle, trenches will run for miles at depths of 6, 8, 10, 12 feet or more. There will be a significant cut in the cap rock that helps support the freshwater lens. The capability of this freshwater lens to recharge itself will forever be altered. We are truly screwing with nature.
Can you point me to an environmental impact study, environmental assessment, or any other official document that shows that this project has considered the challenges that are unique to Big Pine Key and met the test of proper review?
Thanks again for your time today, Shawn,
