"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!!"

your rights (according to Cassandra)
we file them under F for Forget
PETITIONS?-under P for Pretend
Letters to the Editor?Selectively published
So much for Freedom of The Press-
file under M M for Media Monopolies..
Yet,if you are in Russia
and say anything against Putin-expect P for prison
Anything anti- in Paris-expect J for Jail
Like MONOPOLY,soon you can score the full alphabet
of penalties,just for practicing free speech
O-and Freedom of Assembly!
