...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?"

"WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT CHOICE"
We have no path but what is beneath our feet
Brexit.Texit.Exit.Relationships sink.Walls break.Fences fall.
Refugees crawl out of war zones into sinking ships.
France is on fire with protests.Greece bankrupt.
Little Britain confused between choices.Tweedledum
and Tweedledee.Her and she .He and he.He and she.
Haircuts are running for highest offices.Who leads?
Personality politics.Europe catches the EXIT fire-
now it is Scotland,Northern Ireland want IN,
while Sweden ,Greece and Italy want OUT.
What a strange dance this is!Barn dance or hokey-pokey.
More like musical chairs,as one option is removed
every new Press Conference(or Reality TV show-
or Comedy Central.THIS IS YOUR LIFE!

(on Indecision..Well?YES?  or ..NO!
