"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?
DIGITAL CHILDREN (of MALTHUS,HOBBES,RAND)
THEY MAY NOT KNOW
Artifacts except as Museums
When the Grid goes down,and Tesla rockets fail
and Model 3 has batteries defective and faulty
Will we be content with obsolete technology?
Mountains of computers in Third World dumps
Stripped of precious metals,rarely recycled
because the perceived need is for THE NEW.
Park THE OLD in Museums and Rest Homes.
Planned Obsolescence,Soylent Green,1984,Animal Farm
Compile and compound homeless,restless,refugees
in temporary solutions.Use their spare parts for the New Models
