...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?" 

PEACE IS HERE
IN THE CORE ORDER OF ALL BEINGS
war is an illness that kills its host bodies
Irrational,toxic,expensive and ancient,
conflict is embedded deep within our fears .
To us THE OTHER is an enemy and needs be neutralized.
To THE OTHER we are different and a perceived threat
We are THE OTHER.We make war upon ourselves.
That is why civilian casualties far outnumber military deaths
This is why we forget we are (at core)peaceful
In any "normal"life-harvests and seasons,family and friends
Diurnal and nocturnal cycles  repeat with a natural cycle
War is an aberration.We have control of our actions.We are peace.

Now apply this to every interaction in every moment of your life..
