...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?" 

OH PARIS, WHAT IS THE POINT?
IF YOU ARE NOT ART
if you have no free speech
nor freedom of assembly
then terror and fear are all there is
Police the dull power,army the punch fist
what difference are you to tourists?
who cannot use roads nor public transport
and your citizens?-how shall they move?
You ban those who wish to express
their desire to deal with climate change
If the people cannot gather/cannot speak
Will you only listen to "world leaders?"
This air is breathed by every body
We all fill up space-and time is all we have
Necessary energies need to be applied
via a democracy(not a police state)
Give back what you have taken.Liberty limited
is liberty lost.
