"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?
WE ARE WALKING TOGETHER
AWAY FROM VIOLENCE,WALLS,WARS
Towards a lasting civilian culture
(Our only enemy is a military culture)
The children are walking for their lives
As are all women ,smashing glass ceilings
As are all civilians,wishing only to survive
We are all walking for our lives
There are so many issues needing redress
So many actions,speeches,protests
Every step is a dance towards our Future
which will be of peace,harmony.Together
Our ancestors fought wars for peace
We become peace "by any means possible"
