"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?"
THERE IS A LOCH NESS (IN SCOTLAND)
It is wide and deep in places
Photographs show a "Nessie"in black and white
Eyewitnesses swear she is real
I LIKE the idea of Nessie
Of a creature reticent for our eyes
Sonar and radar have yet to re-find her
But those images remain in our mind
May there be such a living creature
May she tempt and delight us "just so"
And may every Scottish witness
increase their tourist industry-GO!
