"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!!"

GET YR DERVISH ON
she gonna put on her belly dancing tapes
she gonna go out dance in the rain
she gonna get her spirit back
she gonna sparkle and shine
don't matter if rain on outside
furnace heart starts art within
chant n holla if ye can't sing!
why are all those birds hummin?
get yr belly shakra shining
get your zumba zoom zoom
when you move,world moves with you
open up the world when you dance in yr room!
