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?"

FIRST,SHE STARTED BY FEEDING THE DEER
"THEY WERE HERE BEFORE US,AND THIS IS THEIR HABITAT!"
In the interest of equality,she bought bird seed for migrating parrots
Well and good-she had feathered visitors,and tame deer
She extended her welcome to those creatures others feared-
alligators,bobcats and vultures-even raccoons
with their trash stealing ways,were placated
but not her Homeowners Association!  Her gated community
made her pay $53,000 to settle a lawsuit.Her kindness in'
providing dog food,chicken and finger sandwiches
to the animals of Grassy Waters Preserve(Florida)
made her aware of a primal dispute over habitat-
four-legged creatures vs two-legged disputing living space...
Guess who is becoming extinct?

...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.
