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?

THE WONDER OF WONDER
To leave all you have known
on the track of butterflies or Amazons
or mythical disappearing dodos
or even Bigfoot or Yetis or Loch Ness monsters
or aliens or abductees or conspiracies theories
or in court with Alex Jones as he debunks school shootings
as "staged events",while new shooters quote old mass murderers
as their primary reference points.To live in this time is a miracle.Like chickens in Bastrop..
To open your mind to the impossible is a start-to Schrodinger's Cats
and Black Swans,Dark Matter and Black Holes.Perfectly fine !To consider

at least two impossible things before breakfast!Thank you,Professor Dodson!

...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.
