THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes:

"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?

EMOTIONS WILD HORSES
RUN OUT OF THE CORRAL OF REASON
Ride slipshod over self-excuses
Break the ground of split creek faces
Between WHAT IS and WHAT YOU SEE
Emotions are uncontrollable/wild rivers
Breaking banks and flooding conversations
You never know what you are going to say
You never know how long they are going to stay
They have no manners.Emotions hubris rises
when your Public Face denies your Privacy Statement.
Your Non-Disclosure Statement is Invalid
You have no Return Ticket.You are seen as you are,
subject to moods and whims and wild winds
that blow you off-course,and leave you
sans sails,sans steam,sans motion picture pleasures
You are on stage,in court,in the audience,judging

How Plead You,Now?

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
