"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!!"

LIFE IN THE DIRT
IT DOES NOT MATTER(IF WE MATTER
What matters is our being
Does water need to know it heals?
Do dogs give unconditional love?
Do cats care?
Is there purpose,aim,intention?
or is this a random universe capable of re-versing itself?
like a liar on the witness stand/you can retract/resile @any time
You do not need reaction nor response
Just being is enough.
Just beaming is enough
