"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?
COME TO THE WOODS
BEFORE ROADS,ONE COULD GET LOST
Now,with SIRI&GPS ,and GOOGLE EARTH
there is no secret spot sans surveillance.
Once,you could backpack into wilderness
Now your phone is a voicemail lifeline
You live as long as your battery life.
Once,there were places with no name.
Now Hostels called THOREAU franchise "Adventure Travel"
Once,the Unknown awaited outside your door.
Now you need to seek Moon and Mars for new adventures
Maybe open a Moon Motel with blinking lights
