"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?
PERHAPS WE ARE OLD FORMAT
Maybe reading now means texting
and concentration is a camp.
Perhaps memory is a stick
and writing morphs to typing.
Maybe folk have no time to read..
Books are still being produced.
Some are bought.Some released.Some pulped.
Who needs journalists,scribes,chanticleers?
Who needs the written world when we are ruled via Tweet?
Maybe character just means 140,or extended-280
Authors trust their readers to read.Readers trust their authors to write
Somewhere,the link has been broken.Read this then ask -WHY?
