"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not? why not indeed!!"

ALPHA BETA CANCER
Do not blame the sun for your melanomas.Laser burn them!
Plethorae of diagnoses with varying life sentences disperse among us
Who is it who has not known one taken by a cancer?Some quick as pancreatic
Some linger/sub symptoms,submerged within blood or bone or tissue
Foundations analyse,diagnose,seek statistics like insurance companies'
Hospitals and hospices deal with their failures.Wigs of donated hair.
Wheelchairs for those immobilized.Here we are-general population/General Hospital
Each facing the big D,come via C.Faith Healers produce duck livers as diseased tissues
We want to believe-pomegranates,blueberries,diet,exercise,medicines will prolong us
Alphabets are sequential,inevitable.After A of Birth,what Comes next?
