"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?
AM A PATIENT PERSON
Recently,they celebrated that time in World War One
when troops on both sides met and talked and played football together
This was so rare it deserved remark -but i want that small event
to be magnified ad infinitum-so we can peacefully await plumbers
in the peace of our own homes-not like Yemen,Syria,Somalia
and much of the Third World,where plumbing is a luxury.
I will wait with you until peace(and a plumber)arrives
to fix the gaps we feel
