...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?"

THE IMPOSSIBLE TASK OF SUBDUING THE COLONIES
IN THE SAME WAY
As King George  had to resort to mercenaries
to send foreign troops to the American colonies
France resumed hostilities,sensing this dilemma..
Foreign wars are still draining our National Treasure
and Blackwater mercenaries have been fighting them for fifteen years.
We commit fewer actual troops this way-but the roll call numbers
are silently supplemented by private companies staffing.
Many of the incidents of civilian damage/loss of life
have been due to mercenaries and drones.
Distance has always been a factor in foreign wars
Now the wars have come home.Streets are ablaze
and black citizens are righteously aggrieved.

 Will they secede?After the American War of Independence
came our Civil War.Both are still being fought.Within us..
