"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!!"

OUT OF SITE
DO NOT WORRY (DO NOT FRET!
Nothing sells!(o @least-nothing yet!
I have 200 books on worldpoetry.org
not a one has yet been bought
and all those e books awaiting purchase?
Well-two have sold!But one must wait
until fifty dollars worth of merchandise has moved
before one takes/whatever incoming finances accrue!
So you do not need a product
trade name nor trademark
Poetic merchandise is there to be ignored
Like history,bunk ,words,music,art and truth!
(all of these you already have within you!
No body sells them/no one buys it is true
But then again-would you really WANT to??
