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)

JOIN THE HAT BAND!

Hats are back!(don't mean a cap!
that you wear back to front-
more a chapeau that you know
will protect you from the sun's harsh glow
That is why -wise by moonlight
we gather @kick butt-to sing the praises
of Woody Guthrie via Dana McBride
Magic Jack and Summer by her side
Broadcast LIVE on Ustream.net
This is how we spend our Sunday nights
with poets and musicians espousing safe hat use
Giving us the energy to ninja on to Monday mornings
Keep your hat on!We have play to share!See you there!

...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.
