...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?" 

ENDINGS DETERMINE LIFE STORIES
and require careful administration.Hospitals and hospices realise
how important it is to listen to our elders,as they process through their final stages
Action is required to authenticate their wishes/to stop elder abuses
To fully authenticate free will and choice.Hemlock -or Happiness?
Euthenasia-or elder Age Curation?Companions  and family are often passed -
hence the need for surrogates-professionals who stay to the last breath/
for those who express a desire for their assistance.Demographics dictate
Death awaits.Parking Station Attendants prepare the earth to receive
those who are about to leave.Do not grieve.Support their right to Be
or not be...


They are not medical experts, but they work alongside NHS staff in hospices or the community to help patients take control over their final days
