...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?"

LIMITS, LAWS, LOVE


ALL IN A SMALL WORLD
Ocean of plastic and sea wrecks
Clouds of radiation O Chenobyl O Fukushima! 
There is no time(two minutes to midnight 
The Doomsday Clock spells Neutron Bombs
We have more arms than human arms 
Weaponized dolphins sing for beached whales
Driven ashore by sonar nuclear submarines 
And the Nobel Peace Prize winner drops drones 
upon the innocent posthumous civilians overseas 
Yet cries when terrorism returns to sender 
Hatred is fear with a weapon.BREATHE DEEPER!
Without connection,we are as aliens on radar
To be shot down like 1950s black and white science fiction  
Our only hope lies in each other.Self takes a Selfie.
Narcissus seeks Celebrity Status.TV for images 
Fashion for high dollars.Yet you have an altar in your heart
Whatever you bow down to/you give power to

May it be Lotus,Love..May there be more..
