Dear Big Issue, My experience of many years as slabs and dirt for pillows was no one really gave a shit they were happy laying eyes on you and making up some excellent report that covers there ass without any of the action, And that's the people who promote themselves as patriots of the homeless cause. BOLLOCKS!
The Big Issue magazine is the one saving grace that did what it said on the tin and continue,s to help people who wish to help themselves, because no matter how bad it gets every homeless person knows there is only one rule if you want to wake up tomorrow. NEVER QUIT.
I hope anyone on the streets tonight has at least a safe skip to shelter from the elements.
This is a poem about one of my experiences when I was homeless. (SCARY HELICOPTER)

I AM A HOMELESS MAN AND I JUST BOUGHT ARMY SURPLUS'
HOPEFULLY NO MORE UPTURNED NOSES ON THE NEXT BUS,
THERE'S A HELICOPTER FOLLOWING ME THROUGH AN ESTATE!
IS IT MI5?
OR DOES THE ARMY WANT A DATE?!
I BACKTRACK TOWARDS IT,
IS IT MY IMAGINATION?
OR DOES THE GOVERMENT WANT TO EXTERMINATE THE WHOLE HOMELESS NATION.
IT HOVERS ABOVE ME AND THE MEN IN GREEN START TO WAVE,
AM I F'IN TRIPPIN OR IS IT A CAMOUFLAGE RAVE.
THEY LOWER DOWN THE WINCH WITH SMILES ALL AROUND,
AND I SECURE IT SAFELY AND COMFORTABLY BOUND.
THE SURPRISE ON THERE FACE,S AS I REACH THE RIM,
HE IS SCREAMING AT THEM
AND THEY ARE SCREAMING AT HIM,
WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?
YOUR NOT ONE OF US!!
AS THEY LOWER ME BACK DOWN
I SHOUT
"ARMY SURPLUS"
I ALMOST TAXED
A HELICOPTER
I LAUGH OUT OF SIGHT,
SUCKING IN THE MADNESS OF ANOTHER HOMELESS NIGHT.
JUST SAYING MAN THE NEXT TIME THE RAF WANTS TO GIVE A HOMELESS MAN A LIFT.
IT'S ARMY SURPLUS YA NUMPTY
"PFFT! PFFT! PFFT!"

Introduction
The Big Issue provides homeless and vulnerably housed people with the opportunity to earn a legitimate income.

Becoming housed is only the first step on the journey away from the streets, so we allow vendors to continue selling the magazine once they have found accommodation.

Big Issue vendors are working, not begging, so if you pay for a magazine please take it.
