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?

STORIES SHARED IN MEMOIRS&BIOGRAPHIES
sit ye down with the famed and infamous.Cures distance and envy
Makes flotsam and jetsam companions,allies and close personal friends.
Like success and failure.Both are welded with the same toothbrush.
Both are stampeding elephants.You can expect lipstick,but not demand it.
Closeness to the Gilded and Golden is like Pitt,DiCaprio and Tarantino-
thrown together in crazed need for audiences to meet their hunger.
Demographics change.Fingerprints of today on the wineglass of tomorrow.
Nostalgia for breakfast-but do not serve it as soup!Futurism is for tomorrow.
Right now,awaken to the gift of another dream,and the capacity
to awaken from it-into another dream(says Edgar Allen Poe)

...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.
