...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, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, 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 within 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?" 

"SIGNIFICANT SPEECH"
EACH SYLLABLE A METEORITE
Every word a star.Burning,incandescent/from ages past
As soon as you cage,air blows free.Until closed system
Then the conundrum is How to Rid Toxicity.Rivers,creeks clog
Traffic gridlocks.Heart attack city arteries.UNBLOCK!
Setting free birds,bees,butterflies -uncaged,on wings
Beats Monsanto mosquitoes against Zika. Cane toads.
Invasive species simply out of context.Anger.Envy.Violence
Common speech a silver song,exchanged for smiles
Value is determined less via markets ,more by miracles.Truth is
Weighed with a feather on the scales of life and art
You are a star child.Whatever is-you are at least a part.
START!·
