"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?
EXTRAORDINARY EXTRANEOUS EXTRUSIONS
When what you make begins to walk and talk
with a life force that becomes autonomous
And all the speling errors and poor grammar
Are now beyond correction(auto- or otherwise)
Then comes the question-what next?
Are we only as good as our latest artpiece?
Will each song poem stand up to the times?
What anthems on the lips of futures?
Can anything be fully resolved?
Are all conundrums periennal?
These bees buzz flowers of the future
while still in the garden of the present
As 2017 slips into a New Year costume
All that will refine ,define and decline her
Becomes caught like bee in amber
This is why linear time is a lie
When Eternity calls,and all we can offer
are songs of praise,poems of wonder
