...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?"

GATHERINGS
CIRCLES&FIRE OVER STEEL &GAS
Sitting on the Good Earth in counsel of wisdom together
Listening to each other when leaders are not
Moving as in wave,waters,wind
Too late to rail,complain,or vex
Too late for rebellion vi et armis
Every hand shall be held ,trusted,clasped
in trust and truth our Release
No more the Ghost Shirt,coup stick,arrow and bow
Though tipis extend with Veterans
No more the tear gas,pepper spray ,dogs
Water for defense,not offense.
Winter now-the test  -a new Civil War?Trail of Tears?
Has this all happened before?
Dogs and batons unleashed against Civil Rights
No honest help from Authorities
Now is the time for Strong Prayers and Peace

Now is the time for Gatherings.
