"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?
NOBEL PRIZE AWARDED!
by declaring the irrational ruler
Freud and Jung and Reich and D H Lawrence knew this
Black river surfaces with oily ambitions
Gas up and drive away from exhaust emissions
Cut all environmental safeguard regulations
Guilt will not stop murder.Restitution.Reparations.
Resolutions do not bring Peace.Affirmations Fall ,Autumn Leaves
We are Seasons.We believe .Chief Justice Ginsberg-
"I believe in the pendulum.It always swings back into equilibrium"
Strange news .Blood and random sacrifice.Irrational rulers,
getting away with callousness,carelessness,indifference.
Until we realize-we are the ones feeding homeless,
because we know displacement.We will be the ones giving love and justice,
because wars and conflicts only damage.We have more control
over our own small lives(with kindness and generosities)Who wants to rule the Big?
