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?"


SERVICE IS WATER SOFT AS KISSES
AIR FOR ALL SAILS
Earth for freed bison/wolves
Fire for warmth/survival
Whether we came from stars
or evolved from deep caves
We  Anthropocenes grew
in plague proportions/outgrew habitat
displaced all previous species
Now we seek space colonies
where the rich can live off-planet
and poor can fight like Zardoz
over scarcer resources
on our heated planet.Apartheid
of walls and wars calls us to evolve
enough to allow the Wild to return
so we might learn again-The Art
Of Peaceful Co-Existence.

...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.
