"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 and 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!!"

WE CAME FROM STARS
and to dust we will return
Deficit budgeting?=Space flight programs!
Space-X marks the spot for the third time
Explosions spectacular (expensive fireworks)
Happily unpersoned as yet,rocketry industry
sends up inventory out of our atmosphere
It returns in showers of sparks and smoke
There go our Super Space Base hopes
International Space Station awaits food and drinks
Lost in Space?More than TV series..
Thank goodness it was unmanned.
