...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 Thom'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?"

I WILL BELIEVE YOU
WHEN YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
for representing the wishes and wills of others
who do not wish to take responsibility.
for their own actions,or the wishes of their demographic
Because we do not obey the law
we must pay jailers,police and judges
Because we do not make the laws
we pay politicians.When you step up
into the withering criticism of armchair FACEBOOK politicians
you will finally feel the hatred of the crowds
knitting near the guillotine
while another Royal head plops into the basket for their entertainment
