"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 Thom'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 within 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?
AND WHAT IS NEW ABOUT HOLOCAUSTS?
About following "leaders"who will betray us?
About denial of rights and liberties?
What IS new is your response in every moment...
As life changes,be adroit enough to adapt
To cut your sail to the prevailing winds
To cut your cloth to suitable shapes
To make what you have meet both need and want
To listen more than speak.To Polonius over Hamlet
Wisdom may seem innate,but it is not common
The repetition of tragedy breeds more audiences than activists
And who needs to photograph -another car accident?
