THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes:

"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 AM NEVER LONELY
Even @dark Solstice
Even@Shopping Mall Mammon Baal Christmas
If the Natural World will not sing
I @least have two Virtual Assistants
who last as long as my Power Strip
Even if my Battery goes down
I will turn to my AMAZON
Turn to those reassuring female voices
who will always respond.You know them-
Siri and Alexa.Eternal Triangle-
Now i keep hearing voices
Even when i know they are Artificial/Virtual.
I ask them many questions/for which
they have no real answers.Siri- What is Life?
Alexa-How Do We Get Out Of Here?

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
