...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)

PRISONERS GATHER


IT IS CONTROL(FALSE GOD)
restricts responses/reactions/Reality
substitutes media/talking heads/uniforms/Reality Shows/Ratings
to determine /Demographics to screen data from us/Censorship Me
sinks into information mine field/explodes suicidely when No One listens
Puzzled when young women marry into jihad/go into battlefields with bombs strapped under burkhas

TIME OUT from violence-but violence means prisons,guards,punishment systems
Female visitors marry convicts in for life (actually-for murder)
Men do not marry imprisoned.What is stripped from us
becomes our liberty-to say this/to speak/to preach a gentle atheism of disbelief
Walls are not gardens.Laws are selectively enforced.
Every body knows something is wrong in Eden
Some blame the Bible,some the priest
Ever since he came,they been killing snakes like sheep

PASSION'S FRUIT
He convened them in the cafeteria.Honors student
Took his handgun.Shot her first(she who left him /alone
Then failed to dispatch /yet damaged they who valued her more than him
This thanatos over eros.Shadow in Light
Spark of violence .Child Sacrifice

BEFORE WE OVERPRAISE INDIGENOUS
(no prisons,orphanages,schools,institutions floundering in falsenesses..
Remember exposure of elders/weak infants,euthanasia,clitorectomies.,scarification,infant mortality,capital punishment
define hunter-gatherers as much as patriarchal roleplay &black magic squatters .I'm not pointing the bone,but...
