...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?

REPRESENT!
I VOTE EVERY CHANCE I GET
I vote against tax increases,FOR environmental safeguards
But there are those who say they are my "representatives"
who neither listen to nor understand my priorities
They are assisted by Mister Gerry Mander
whose domain and dominion erratically excludes us
from any meaningful participation/representation
When i write to them,i get cliches in return
When i try and phone,their line is busy
It would appear their wish is NOT to represent
So i seek their removal from public office
replacing them with someone who will listen
Someone like YOU,who has a sense of civic duty

You have my vote!Use it wisely!
