"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!!"

AND ANOTHER THING
BIRDS WERE HERE BEFORE US(but not gods
(we made that bit up-Imagination is like that
My beliefs are none-so you disparage me
when you push a version of god
and say EAT IT!/Twisted Oliver..
We DO create our chosen realities
As a card-carrying fantasist,i have AMAZING dreams
Many a time and oft,waking is a disappointment
and it is hard to tell the dream from the "real"
The danger with concepts is -people attach
SACRIFICE an outmoded harvest propitiation
still extant in Syria,Somalia,Yemen and Wall Street
You go tell those Greeks to practice AUSTERITY!
They had worse gods before EEC/and all of them in ruins
The current slaughter of TRUTH,HARMONY,PEACE &PROSPERITY
can best be personified by aid workers and journalists ,women and children
being publically held for ransom as hostages,then disposed of
Such cynicism is BEYOND REDEMPTION-Bibles/Korans need be burned
before people in cages are burned.People are all we are/all we have
Beliefs change like global warming theories.One day we might learn
the full names of the 162 credited"kills"of Christian Chris Kyle.
