"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?
IT IS NOT EVEN THANKSGIVING
ALL THE SHOPS ARE SELLING XMAS
Shopping Seasons have pre-empted Natural Selection
You can only buy what is being sold
Out go turkeys and dressing-in come chickens with gravy
From Ben Franklin turkeys to white wire deer
What we eat is what we become.I prefer
the salutations of Solstice,the wonders of WASSAIL!
Singing of songs and sharing of poems.Art that barks
And every cat content cultural conversational continuum
I know we change slowly-but time just left /with an URGENT appointment
with an allegedly "New"Year!
