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?"

DE PROFUNDIS
Dissolution Distance. Despair Death-
All leave a hole in the tooth of decay
Where consolation, care, consideration, compassion might seek to fill
yet find the medicine inadequate emotionally.
Each of us carries a bucket of tears-it spills out when we least expect
Loss of love,life,laughter,Light-the inventory is endless
Antidotes of Senecan Stoicisms, Confucian Calm, Marcus Aurelian Maxims
might placate and sedate temporarily-but the hole in one's heart opens
and out come all those unfulfilled expressions. Grief is a thief of love.
It shoplifts Life, and hijacks Light. Wet hitch hiker, Sorrow is too easily transported.
Carry your Candles of Consolation. Your Caravan of Dreams. Your Pyres for Prayers.
All will be needed to blanket the fires of India.

FEELINGS
CONSOLATIO
We fall into the potholes of sorrows
Trough of Despond on the Pilgrim's Progress
We can choose to deny,defy,defer emotional responses
They exist no matter what we choose. Live through this.
We can embrace all grief. Express our tears. Scream and shout it out.
Or clump in a heap on the floor of despair. All is choice. Voice is one way-
to ululate,sing,shout,scream,vent our emotional reactions-
or absorb,slow down,meditate,assimilate this grieving process. Choice is yours-
no past,parents,failures,previous responses shall limit or circumscribe
our ability to flow into grief. Let it fill you up. Then release(in your own good time)
To move on to the next station. The next intersection of thoughts and feelings.
The next time Fate tests your Free Will-in a context of pain and consequence.

"KANGAROOS ARE NOT SHOES"
They are indigenous vegetarians,indigenous Continent
with four main species which accord with each landscape.
Big Red roos for deserts,gray wallabies for bush and trees,
potaroos and (black)wallaroos for Kangaroo Island.There are also "rat kangaroos".
Some call them the "deer of Australia"-and call for culling to stop over-population.
Kangaroo shooting has been happening since European occupation(1788-2021)
and they were a staple for Aboriginal hunters.But the scale of killing is now industrial.
I have sat with wallabies at Lone Pine Animal Sanctuary,in a paddock  of peaceful intentions.
Their eyes are worlds of wonder.Their back legs strong as forests.I would never knowingly 
eat kangaroo meat(although the content of Australian pies was often horse,donkey and (we suspect)kangaroo,too..
Our shared land is subject to extreme climate changes-floods where roos drown,drought where they starve.
They are also road killed en masse by huge road trains that barrel along highways of death .
So there is a natural rate of attrition,an environmental one,and a huge casualty list caused by us. Our cars,our trucks.
What can be stopped is the commercialization of kangaroo culls-profiting for export our native fauna.
Customs is harsh on the export of prohibited flora and fauna. Kangaroo meat (&hides)an exception
This industry of murder can be stopped once you actually meet a kangaroo.
Once you do-you will not ever wish to cause them harm. They are the true Australian.

Corsican Wildcat; Brute Force interview; Pledge allegiance to the planet; Asian cheetahs (OTT #129)


This episode features an exclusive interview with legendary Apple Records star Brute Force In which explains why he produces allegiance to the planet, we revisit the conundrum of whether the Asiatic cheetah has survived outside its last known bastion in the middle of Iran, and we examine claims that it is still to be found in Bangladesh, and we look at the recent discovery of the Corsican wildcat - a creature that Bernard Heuvelmans predicted back in the day.

And Hennis goes to the Polling Station. So, if you want to attend a visual entertainment consisting of hard science and a smattering of weird shit, interspersed with us dicking about in an increasingly surreal manner, give uit a go.

This magazine continues to go off on strange tangents that I never expect, but I am very happy to see it do so. What is in this week? Ooooh lots of things.

And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive, AND Merrell Fankhauser, and the Real Music Club, AND Strange Fruit, and Mr Biffo, there is a column from Kev Rowland, and C.J Stone, but Mr Biffo, Tony Klinger and Neil Nixon, are on hiatus. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and dibblers who have got the blues (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are listening to the new Bob Dylan album, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!
