...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?" 


PETITION TO CONSCIOUSNESS
HISTORY BURPS.BOMBS KILL US
Peace is a process between us.Poetry is lingua lilting music
asking us to be/remain human.Food,not bombs.Love and compassion,not killing.
Certain words become bombs-"Terror"/"terrorists"-to use them is to abuse them
We are civilians.Human beings.We do not wish bombs among us/nor bombs above us
If we are in America,Syria,Iraq-makes no difference.In fact-we need gardens-for food-for refugees
We need shelter-for all-for those fleeing from bombs.We need to focus upon healing ,not hurting.
Flowers over flames.Kindness over killing.Loving and living over fearing and hating
You already know this.You live this.This is just a song asking for chorus.To save all of us
We need all of all of us.on one side-the living side-of the walls/wars/worlds between us

TRUST YOUR LOVE!..
