"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?
I HAVE HAD THIS BODY ALL MY LIFE
IT WAS PRESENTED TO ME AS A GIFT
and i know i have to return it in good condition @the end
But recently,parts have started to deteriorate
My eyes blur @computer screens
My ears deafened by Death Metal
My taste buds ruined by chocolate and icecream
My feet dangling under an office desk
My hands thumb drives for text machines
My knees knock.My turkey neck.My dand ruffs.
Parts are falling off all over!Soon the last thin hair
will welcome a landing zone on top of Pate Dome
I am sure you may also be feeling the effect of years
I wonder if i will get my karmic deposit back
once they see the condition i am in?
