"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!!"

MINIMUM WAGE/MAXIMUM RAGE
BOTTOM OF THE FOOD CHAIN
LET ME OFF MY DOG CHAIN!
See my anger unleashed
when the customers want to beef
and the meat of their arguments is thin
Serving and servicing them
is a process ad infinitum
Few see beyond the role definition
(One day i will be serving them
another day they will be serving me)
This the great lesson of history and industry
One day it is all about you
Next life-watch out for me!
That is why it is called a "service"industry!
You've just been served!EASY!
