Scrooge Alive And Well At The Groves

Christmas is a time that often brings out the best of us that makes us know we are human still
Acts of kindness like the Wal-Mart clerk who paid an elderly man’s grocery bill
But sadly acts of inhumanity are also alive and well
The acts of the landlord of the Groves in Central, South Carolina make you want to send him to hell
Sgt. Bolt is serving our country while this pathetic landlord wants to prevent him with his wife dwell
Wants to double the rent since he is not on the lease
Threatens to arrest this soldier if his time there does not cease
The Groves evidently targets students which Mrs. Bolt is and a very new mother to boot
On a sergeant’s pay with a new child probably Bolt cannot sign and end this dispute
We in this country are being devastated by families in which the father is not there
The children face an uphill struggle which is really to them not fair
The policy of this nation should be to encourage a two parent household and any barriers so reject
Especially when one parent dons a uniform and tries to this country from harm protect
Fox News has done a great service to notify us of this landlord Scrooge
But needs to do more with name and address so peaceful protests against the landlord can surge
Even though it were not the Christmas season
This Scrooge is guilty of to humanity treason
