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?"
WORLD CUP ZIKA
DO NOT GET PREGNANT!
Brazil is the center /we have our first entering
like Ebola flying in /like Sarin in Subways
like anthrax mailed to Democrats
like chemical weapons in Syria
like phosphorus bombs dropped on Palestinians
Zika has now entered our building/making heads maller
perhaps resulting in seizures(there is as yet no cure
So ,like Texas'Abstinence Sex Education school programs
or NO REFUSAL police holiday roadblocks
it is beyond our powers.Some wish to wage war (upon mosquitoes!
But they were here in swamps long before and after us-
like rats and cockroaches,sharks and crocodiles
There is no vaccine,nor antidote
Even World Health Organisation calls this EMERGENCY
I will add antidotes to my standing water tanks
still replete from last Austin night rains
I will watch the World Cup(from a drone distance
and trust we will win!(over those airborne mosquitoes...
