...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?

BECAUSE IT MATTERS
WHAT YOU DO IN THIS LIFE MATTERS
i write poetry and petitions to you,my peers/my jury
You have a bucket of tears and a sliced bread of time
You can soak the bread in tears but it becomes useless
Bread is life .More than a metaphor.Being born is a start
But there are no guarantees.Goodwill is an elixir/like friendship
It is time to manifest .Let happiness reign!There will always be reasons
for anger,hurt,despair-to seep into our daily bread/making it useless.
Tears are necessary,but they are salt and hard to drink.
Waters of kindness,healing,compassion and love
are bandages for the broken,weary and hurt.

We know why we are here.It is to learn.
