"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 HEAVEN IS HERE(WHY DO WE FEAR?
Why guns and walls ,prisons and cages?
Why Reigns of Terror,executions,Blessing Armies.then corpses?
A:All is One.There is no Separation...
Once,in El Paso,i met a Chilean who had tortured students
He thought he was killing Communism
And those with massacre on minds also believe
in a Divine Cleansing like a Kamikazi Wind
Why question inevitable death,decline,dementia?
Why worry when it sits as close as Jackal and as Owl?
Events are close as skin .Family as pain.
Blood has ways of inveigling .Accessory/Accomplice?
The Book Of Job a Stoic text.Limbo.Purgatory-
Both Jesuit stages of cleansing we told ourselves as necessary.
You do not need to suffer.Choice is consciousness.
Release each to their other choices.Love.Witness.Compassion.
