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?"
THERE MUST BE A SPACE (WHERE WE ARE NOT)
RAINFORESTS BURN,RIVERS DO,TOO
We bring fire(we need to be warm).Be warned
This is not all we will do!Build walls(around-prisons
Make wars.Pollute.Promote tourist sites as "virginal"
Fly rich folk in for "eco-Tours".Allow them to buy islands.
Whole lands.So Johnny Depp buys back Sacred Lands
Sting busy Amazon rainforests.Leaves them away from loggers.
Indonesia burns.Sumatra clearfelled.Palm Oil deforestation.
We read labels -but it says"ORGANIC".Ask orang-utans!
Dispossessed indigenous and wildlife have no habitat.
We evict ourselves.Overpopulate.Suppurate in cities.Boiling point.Frogs
disappear.Birds and bees extinct.there MUST be a space we can move to .Another planet?
to pollute?Space junk and Star wars.Screening now in a Universe near you..
