"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?
IF YOU ARE WILDE,YOU BETTER BEWARE!
Be wary.Be Aware!Be alert.Are that the earth beneath you
may soon hold your bones(if hunters value your flesh,or horns)
It is as if there is a lottery on your life.If you are small and cute as a koala
you may get a petting zoo-or animal sanctuary.If you are huge as a gorilla...
you will need a Jane Goodall as protector.Most who are made of meat will be eaten.
Served up as alligator steaks or deer stew.Even gentle kangaroos..farmed like salmon.
Soon there will be only photographs and footprints left /for all wilde will be bred out of us
We will forget how to fly.How to fight.How to fantasize.How to leap out of Tsunami zones
as birds do,sniffing bushfires.That adrenal rush will leave us/sitting ducks.
And it is always duck season.Reason has nothing to do with this.Extermination
is ongoing to completion.Once the wild has left or been cut down to mild companion animal cages/
the rest can rest knowing only humans as hunters/until the next Extinction Saga repeats
