"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!!"

AIR IS NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE
Kerosine,vapor trails,chemtrails,carbon monoxide,car exhausts
industrial emissions.Since coal mining slowed in England
the air is almost Chenobyl clean.O disrupted weather patterns!!Hurricanes,tornadoes!
The instant hailstorm was not usual hailstones.Get used to canned air!(like Canned Heat
In China,fortunes are made!San Fran-oxygen machines(pure!$5=15 minutes
Immune systems down-cyclists wear face masks.Curved Air.
BREATHE in the airs of Pink Floyd."Music hath charms to soothe the savage breasts"
With my last breath-i share the meaning of life...
When one gold coin turned up first morning
we all watched with wonder.Now,we sleep in
The price of gold fluctuates like daily temperatures.
Gold markets manipulated like blood diamonds
Gold flakes on Japanese rice.Gold plated toilets
Now the land belongs to laminates.NO PARKING!
Forget that Gold Standards are like Land Values?
Dollar is just a note.Gold is a ring,a kiss
Your love affair with precious metals is a commodity.
