"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 Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth 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 with in 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? why not indeed!!"

WHERE DID WE GO WRONG?
PERHAPS,IF ALL INDIGENOUS
enforced a strict immigration policy
We might not be in such a quiver
KKK in Ferguson.Both imported species
Had the Iroquois Federation won-
we would be speaking Haudenosaunee
Issues would not be school shootings
more deer hunting seasons.Ethics
would not mean Congressional Investigations
just the way we treat each other.Never too late.
Turn land back to Tribal Elders.Close Casinos.
Restore Tribal laws.Then let them see
how they might treat we European refugees..
