...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 WAS ROBBED ONCE, TWICE, THRICE
it was by the very same youth
who had been invited to my house party
when he laughed at my naivety
i determined to end the movie
before it became a franchise
He did  not believe it when i called the police
had him charged with theft of belongings
(restitution was impossible-everything was gone)
So he wrote to me from prison asking forgiveness
I wrote back saying forgiveness comes with change of heart
and neither his heart nor mine had changed.
He did not return to rob.I have been robbed before
and will be again.And the point has always been-
it is not what you choose to steal.It is your opinion of me

that is the real theft.
