"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?
IF YOU SPEAK THE SPELL OF WHAT IS
YOU BECOME A PILLORIED REPORTER
If you speak the notes of a bright future
Your prophecies will be censored
Addiction to repetition.Repetition.
Prisoners of habit.Habit.We repeat
because we need new words to describe old miracles.
Everything has happened before.Or today is "New"
Sequence and numbers ascribed like languages.
Yet we persist with trust in the miraculous.
Plastic oceans.Radioactivity.What would Shakespeare say?
How will you enact new miracles today?
