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?"

THE JOY OF CONSPIRACIES
Always making an US to pit against THE OTHER
Which ,as Hitler showed-could mean intellectuals,disabled,religious people,
Communists(a favorite target),Socialists,Romanies,homosexuals-and Jews.
Even though Fascists lost the last World War,fascism thrives
And it still has similar targets.It breeds in collective paranoia,symbology and Tiki torches
It LOVES charismatic leaders ,militarism,authoritarianism,pageant and pomp
Updated to bearded boys with semi-automatic trigger fingers.
Now THE OTHER is extended to Refugees,Migrants,Homeless,Transgendered people
WHITE PRIVILEGE masquerading as WHITE POWER,hating all other races..
Emotionally,this satisfies GROUP AFFINITY.Intellectually,the unity is ANTI-
Against women,science,rationality,equality-yet still pretending a religious base.
Jesus would not stand a chance on the Texas Border-neither would Buddha.
Perhaps insurrectionists do not remember World War Two-and the defeat of fascism
Poetry is here to remind them-cabbage eaten twice never tastes the same
and a souffle only rises once.

Gonzo Weekly #465/6
THE SECRETS ISSUE
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? 120 pages of Written by Wolves, Me getting metaphysical, end of lockdown? Tears for Fears, Brinsley Schwarz, Era Nova, The Gardening Club.
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive, AND Merrell Fankhauser, Mr Biffo, Puls8 Radio, and the Real Music Club, AND Strange Fruit, there is a column from Kev Rowland, and C.J Stone but Mr Biffo, 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!!!
..And the last few issues are:

FOOL MOON WATERS
I am affected by the moon
I am made of tidal teardrops
They Spring forth when Autumn Falls
I chant Rain Invocations inviting liquidities
Wish our Water Barrels fill for Fall Gardens Rise!
Let the flow of blood heighten our joy!
May rain return us to our Natural Happiness!
May heated arguments become cool chill conversations
May these Piscean moments elevate and levitate us
May we be aligned with all that is liquid and precious
Aligned in harmonies ,with hale and hearty happiness
And may all that communicate and confer with 
EVERY SINGULAR/COLLECTIVE COMMUNITY OF ALL OF US-
Via song,poem,chant,invocation,chorus!-
SING WITH US!

"AT LEAST HE LEFT DOING WHAT HE LOVED"
"HE WAS ALWAYS OF SERVICE TO HIS FRIENDS"
He cared for his gifted cat,other people's pets,their children
He would clean their home until it was spotless.
His last (and current)job was washing dishes.He LOVED washing dishes.
He was fully focused in every moment-living with no compromise.
He found a home among poets because he was made of love and pain and loss
His poet PAZ had passed,so he read Paz's poetry until reminded of his own he/art.
Lost child?Hurt human?At times,compassionate and kind.At times,Imperial Hubris.
So many sides to his addictions.He was passionate about learning.Obsessive
about GAME OF THRONES,Elton John,Lady Ga-Ga-and the Tarot.
Now his friends reveal how much they loved this lost boy/this naive waif.
His bombast in public hid a very private hurt soul.His eyes revealed him.
So many selves,all of them searching.May he have found his peace.

...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.
