"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!!"

EYE AM BECOME AN EGG
For so many breakfasts,from hen to plate
frypan to mouth,dozens later/scrambled
Yet the essence as simply as oval/ova.
Apple an orchard hanging branch fulness
Egg a barnyard historic,now factory farmed
Cages for debeaked literary critics
Censored and edited to fit facts of deadlines
We do not want to learn what we imbibe
What we are we eat.Eye am egg.Roll me !
