"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?
YOUR EVER-RENEWABLE ENERGIES!
WISE BEYOND HIS YEARS
Benny Zable has stood as our Man in Black
with a gas mask on/stood on oil barrels
with a silent sign saying IT'S COSTING THE EARTH!
Every demonstration for peace,justice,the environment
sees Benny standing up for forests,wild rivers,rainforests
and every human cause for respect,communication and responsibility.
He expanded his visual repertoire into EARTH FLAGS and RAINBOW FLAGS
and every art sign that might harmonize with life,color,shape and form.
Recently,@the age of 75,Benny got married(in Strawberry Fields)-
standing around and singing around the IMAGINE Yoko Ono art of New York.
He then went straight to a blockade to save your world-
"Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediment!"
