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?"
A FAREWELL TO A QUEEN

how divorce forced the abdication of Edward VIII for his love of Wallis Warfield.
In 2021,Prince Harry is permitted to marry a divorced American Megan Markle.
Elizabeth II is related both to George Washington and Robert E Lee.
The Queen has toured America almost as much as she has Canada and Australia.
Media has placed her in photographs with Presidents and Prime Ministers.
Yet,that same media has exposed Royalty as a threatened species.
The death of Lady Di. That Oprah Winfrey interview. The death of Prince Phillip
has left Elizabeth a lonely Monarch ,presiding over a tourist Empire.
Newspapers exposed Prince Charles's liaison with Camilla Parker-Bowles.
Gossip magazines no longer care if Prince Charles will reign (if at all)
Preparations are underway for this final,inevitable funeral.
Then-a new TV mini-series will have a surprise ending..
