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?

COLLETERAL DAMAGE
WOODY ALLEN,AL FRANKEN,GARRISON KEILOR
We no longer hear their voices in our global village
(not to mention those actors accused /whose careers have been terminated..
There are degrees of shame and guilt,and legal standards of proof
Accusations alone are the stuff of slander,and muddy the pool
when real sexual predators cruise the ranks of Hollywood (and Washington)
"Low-hanging fruit"is the harvest of finger-pointing accusers
some of whom have been accused of the same behavior as they condemn.
The personal lives of writers has long been in contrast to their work.
Roman Polanski accused of underage sexual exploitation -
yet he continues to create in exile.I want to hear from victims -
as well as those they accuse.@the moment,the media are judge and jury and executioner
Why not ask the people -what will they do with an adulterous Christian President?

...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.
