...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?"

EARTH DAY MATTERS
WE ARE ALL VISITORS HERE
on  temporary Visas.Borders of Space/Time
make Gravity of the situation here on Earth.
We made it to the Moon-but that was just to visit.
We have a camera on Mars-but no robots as yet.
We are worried about the way we are affecting the air and waters here.
Plastic oceans,radioactive bombsites,tainted water supplies.
Solutions abound,but are not applied.Science is debunked.
Evidence of global warming laughed at.Hottest year on record.
Perhaps if we called it CLIMATE DISRUPTION-folk might concede
that Earth is worse off with our 7 billion breather breeders than pre-us.
Even if they agree-what is to be done?Whip the tides?Punish the sun for solar power?
Renewable energies require us to curb us,not the cut trees and fracked water supplies.
Once we see this,perhaps a remedy might be applied.If not..another Earth Day is lost

There is no other"Earth"
