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?

AWARE OF GRAVITY /MIND IN THE STARS
GONG vs HAWKWIND explore ad astra
Embracing futuristic concepts in music,books and art,
we have already designed space colonies(in our minds).
Movies take us to where there is no Final Frontier
IMAX minds choose-Moon vs Mars/Gravity vs Levity.
Aliens in the audience put their David Bowie /Major Tom space suits on.
The Answer is Out There vs In Here.Is there-Space for the Human Race?
As it is,billionaires can buy passages on the New Titanic.
AVATAR franchises explored space mining on asteroids
Now it is STAR TREK vs STAR WARS.Space Race vs Space Corps.
Every science fiction movie becomes another failed rocket
What is needed -is something new.How will you fly?

When even Jumbo Jets fall from the skies..

...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.
