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?"
ART IS THE WAY WE LIVE
WE DO NOT LIVE IN BATTERY HEN CELLS
Nor in cages to defeat free range ideas.Migrating birds
as regular as wingbeats shot for flesh and feathers.
Art of the shotgun meets wall trophies/served fresh!death.
Walt Disney,Mao and Lenin all waxed /posthumous and perfect
Trademarks and brand names all registered as proprietary interests
Art engages us in all senses on all levels-film,opera,music merge
Chills when we recognise deep knife cut abattoir truth.Outside
wild winds beat Cornwall waves to shore.Refugees still set sail for
there is no art in silence/that photograph -child napalm burned/baby drowned
tear away any pretence of distance..When you walk-it becomes Wuppertal
When you hear morning birds sing-give praise to life as art as life alone
needs other eyes to see,feel,know,touch,speak,sing,connect .."Only Connect"
