"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?
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON
Coal and uranium mining and fracking
Water that will cycle through us and recycle afterwards
has changed to rainbow colors.Yellow.Brown.Red.Black.
Toxic algae gathers in imprisoned waters.Who wants children in cages?
Who says dams are "development?"Who raises funds for more walls?
If we are conscious,and we are made of water,then water is conscious
and wakes us up with coffee and with heated showers
and leads us to tranquil harbors and Sacred Wells,and Springs
that flow until the Next Big Drought.Bone Dry.We are bones,dried.
