...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?"

AS OF AUGUST 25,2016
One ant cannot build a Pyramid
(yet pyramids exist /on land and underseas)
Fire ants persist(even when poisons can kill them)
The energy of ants still builds/when they work together
Rather than being squashed underfoot/some army ants
invade other territories.While peace ants
simply build tunnels and caves for winter/
stocking up for floods,fires and natural disasters.
We are not ants(are we not two-legged?
yet we still war and build,invade and fight
and some just live,while others wish Empires.

Are we not ants?Ask the gods of boots above us...
