...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.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


Rob Ayling 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 Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth 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 with in 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? why not indeed!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)

THEY ARE LEAVING (FASTER THAN REMEMBRANCES)
Elders of our age /examples and sage
may have made their decision
(or age may have made it for them)

 to leave their only Holy Skin
if they were in pain,or fear
or some dis-ease was hovering near
The rest of us remain..(until we change
and must face END OF LIFE issues
at present packaged and addressed
 to Grand-and elder parents.

It is not our time to leave as yet
we have more to learn and do
No matter what others are telling you
They do not wish to leave,too
That is why they are watching what you do
to learn from you!
