THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

Rob Ayling writes: 

"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!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)

WILLIAM SICKWITT

William left his small village-
said to his family-"i will find fame and fortune
with my poetry and music in big little Austin"
Got a job on his first day in town
love the open mike rounds
played harp in a WORDJAZZ band
found a home on the stage of Ruta Maya Tuesdays
and he played his harp/and he waged his heart
would bring some bright -eyed better days
He was featured at NeWorlDeli
He was featured @Ruta Maya
He spoke his truth on many levels of desire
Life came to change his destiny.His sister and his family
gathered every poem he ever wrote/chose as much as they could afford
and will launch his only book on Amazon.com Message plain and simple(this-
Be your best love!Be your bliss!

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
