...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?"

FUZZY LOGIC
How did they get away with this?
Separation of Church and State BUT
we pay the taxes for church property
and allow tax deductions for them as charities
And some churches still interfere in politics..
Civilian control of the military
but no accountability for billion dollar boondoggles
and militarized police forces
Bill of Rights?Yes!Still privitized prisons are filled
with non-violent drug offenders,awaiting (rare)Presidential Pardons
Freedom of Speech?Apart from libel,slander,defamation law suits in this most litigious nation
And bumped up bail ,with bad legal aid.Recidivism mixed with refugees imprisoned

and youth jailed as adults.THINK CLEARLY.What kind of wisdom allows this in the dying days of 2016?
