The Ghost has finally appeared!--Lets talk about beating up the =
homeless.=20
I have noticed that the poor go very unnoticed by most people. I know =
that most people don`t want to read about the very poor. I am talking =
about those who eat out of trash cans and piss on the subway. The =
homeless are the real forgotten people in just about every major city in =
the world. Here in Tokyo the homeless try to stay unnoticed for fear of =
being beaten up or mess with by the police. All it take is one little =
Japanese chick to get grossed out my some guy trying to catch a few =
hours of sleep in a forgotten corner of the train station and the police =
come running to give the guy pure hell. If he does not get up and leave =
the station or at least move to a spot that most people to not venture a =
beating is in order.

Tokyo is the most advanced city in the world but the police still can =
dish a brutal beating on a helpless homeless guy at a moments notice. =
Even though everyone passing by can see the guy get the shit kick out of =
him they just keep on walking as if nothing is happening. As you walk =
down the walkway you can hear the moans and smell the blood and piss of =
a poor old Japanese guy get beat to a pulp by a small group of cops =
wielding billy sticks. Sometimes the homeless guy will cry out for help =
but it only makes the beating worse. The cops also like to take the wrap =
sack, a common item along the homeless in Tokyo, and toss everything in =
it all over the place. If they find anything that could be used as a =
weapon in the slightest way the cops drag the guy off for some time in =
the drunk tank. They might charge him with possession of a deadly =
weapon, as weapons of all kind are banned in Japan, just so they can =
hold him longer in the drunk tank. In the end the guy finally gets out =
of jail beat up and having lost all of this worldly possessions. It is =
sick stuff indeed.

The homeless women are the ones who really bring tears to ones eyes. =
Most of the homeless women are really old and in bad health. A lot of =
them are victims of a vastly changing thinking in the culture of Japan. =
Only in the past severals decades have women in Japan enjoyed total =
liberation and independence. It is common place to see the working girl =
in Japan go about her daily life free from the whims of an overbearing =
asshole. For many of the old homeless women on the streets of Tokyo =
never enjoyed such freedom. They lived under the hand of their husband. =
Always seen and almost never heard, was the live these women had for =
much of their lives. They end up on the streets due to having been =
disconnected from their family and their husband leaving nothing for =
them to live on after his death. Common among these homeless women is a =
broken down back and torn dirty brown dresses that once showed off their =
now long gone youthful beauty. If they are lucky they will have shoes. =
The shoes the few lucky ones have are full of holes. They dig though =
garbage cans for food that some spoiled Japanese teenager threw away =
after eating only a few bits. Sadly many of these women die every =
winter. Their old abused bodies just can`t take the harsh winter. A lot =
of them just curl up into a ball and fade away.
I wonder who these women where back in the day. Some of them must have =
been very beautiful and a prize by any man`s standard. They might have =
been some of the most gentle women in the world. They gave their total =
loyalty to one man for the rest of their days and for that they end up =
old, hungry, forgotten and dead on the street.=20

It really is a sad state of affairs for the homeless in Tokyo. Some of =
them do find safety in the few hidden shelters that take in the =
homeless. The shelters fill up quickly sometimes leaving most to wonder =
the streets in search of some place to sleep safely. The homeless men =
sometimes give their bad at a shelter for one of the women who are =
really bad off. Even in the lowest point in a persons life the Japanese =
sense of togetherness can be found.

So goes life on the streets for the homeless of Tokyo. Everyday they =
survive is yet another day of struggle and pain. I write about the older =
ones because they get the rougher end of the shit stick of homeless. The =
younger make it though all right most of the time except for the ones =
trapped by drug addiction or prostitution. Seeing these poor tortured =
soul reminds me that all of us are just a few wrong turns from ending in =
the streets besides them. It helps to drive you to get on the right path =
or else......
