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?"

ONE EYE CANNOT SEE THE OTHER
THERE IS NO "OTHER"
Only Rashomon eyewitness Impeachment Megxit/Brexit  testimonies
Every demonstration carries different placards
Legions of gun-owners swear allegiance to FOX News
Who owns the talk-back radio Christian syndicates?
And the Churches pay no taxes but insist on RIGHT TO LIFE
Anger in the air that needs expression/a victim
Seen through the eyes of innocents/not the predator
This has already happened too many times/massacre
in places of worship.In cinemas.@country music shows.
Places of peace and sanctuary/disrupted by the interruptive gunfire
And stuttering semi-automatics silence any critics
IT IS OUR RIGHT TO CARRY A GUN vs RIGHT TO LIFE
Our lives are more important than any weapons you may carry.
You have two arms to hold,caress and cuddle.Love and warmth.

...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.
