"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?
ECONOMICS OF CONSENT
POWER CORRUPTS(&is addictive
This drug is wielded by a few
who have control over other people's lives
Power may be physical,economic or via attributed status
(Paedophile priests shock more than pop stars)
Directors have more power than actors
Who writes the script for these encounters?
Who holds the keys and the cocaine?
When we are forced to fight for a scarce commodity
And the real price of involvement is our integrity
Values fluctuate according to pecking orders
When can we say to an abusive temporary President
YOU'RE FIRED!Just as previous Presidents have been impeached?
All the Little Presidents (employers,owners,controllers..
We are all in this hen house together.Some of the foxes wear chicken masks..
