...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 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 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!!" 

SONG OF WHERE YOU ARE
WE STOLE TIME TO LISTEN TO EACH OTHER
i admire her for her advocacy  work
defending those with no tongue,nor lawyer,nor wealth
trapped within the labyrinth of bureaucracies
(This is everywhere-yet many are spider webbed and bitten-
she heals by rock resistance against the deaf with power
and the dull with force.
They want her to retire.Thorn in their side
Yet just as the Police Monitor Panel has no one critical of police
if she leaves,who will speak?She knows this and stays.
Aloneness of service with no advocate for advocates.
Anger of Emperors,naked  and swatting mosquito questioners
Standing upon those to climb a ladder to career.Careering..
You know them-they who use you to climb over you
"i"over the "we".Withdrawees from community.
Well,the Bank of Trust is quite specific about this!
If you invest in people,you will get a high rate of interest.
If you withdraw,you must lose your balance.She knows this,smiles

Resumes service.
