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?"

FEBRUARY MORE VOICES: AGEING
IMMORTALITY
All of our past lives and now
Run out tomorrow

AS WE GET OLDER
(i forget what will happen..
ah!Yes!i forget..

TURKEY NECK/CROWS FEET
i resemble animals
who age gracefully..

DOCTOR GIVES ME PILLS
They say they have no cure
For Mortality.

THIS LIFE UP TO NOW
has been a wonderful ride..
This flat tire?Oh!...

JOY IS IN THE AIR
i can not remember why..
Ah!..Dementia...

THERE ARE DIFFERENCES-
Alzheimers,Dementia
Cannot remember..

SOME HAVE ESCAPED DEATH
Some have a very long life
We,Immortalists!

...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.
