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?"
STING BOUGHT AMAZON RAINFOREST
IN ORDER TO PRESERVE IT.
Others,on Facebook,buy cleared areas
to profit by this.Now the cleared areas
emit 410 million tons of carbon dioxide yearly,
because of fires and deforestation.You cannot build a rainforest.
Our breathing depends upon these "lungs of the earth"
Amazon needs lung transplant-but it is /was unique
Like the Great Barrier reef,human intervention destroys
Like the air we breathe-polluted ,with particles
Allergies,respiratory diseases-smoke from distant fires
becomes a nightmare in the air we breathe.
REPLANT MULTI-SPECIES.RAINFORESTS FOREVER,PLEASE!
