"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!!"

HAVING DONE OUR DUTY(and been done-
by Sloth,Greed,Baal and Mammon
Sacrificial turkeys sliced up
Good cheer swallowed down
We have become those waddling turkeys
We carry what we devour and consume
We toast the moon,drink sparkle sunshine
Snore when MORE is no longer an option
Childhood memories of trees and presents
become plates and mess to be cleaned up
Downside of detritus(we are our planet-
and soon we will have filled our frames
and the round belly of this earth will open up
and either eat us -or belch us out!
Then i woke up-it was the turkey!
Tryptophan tripping inside of me/seeking release!
