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)

ABUSERS
WORLD S GOT TALENT!
So you have a jury
say three or four faces you know
who pass judgement upon souls who
have survived auditions among thousands who wish
to be THE ONE who wins-
a.a recording contract
b.applause and acceptance
c.paid gigs because of this freebie
Nervousness,an audience,soap opera camerawork
Tension,music,a studio.Finally-a winner!
Which makes all others losers.So 99% go home less
for 1% to feel more! PROMOTE EVERY VOICE!
Get to your live open mikes and stand your ground!
Your wings await you!

...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.
