...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?


It's not a hard thing to limit a person.
BEGIN WITH DIAGNOSIS
This can be helpful or destabilizing
when there is no social safety net
nor any effective education to rise up out of it
If you are autistic,or have ADHD or some version of PTSD
unless you have access to a support structure
the only change will be deleterious.Poverty is not noble.
Ignorance is less.Community means more than family.
Religion blesses,then moves on."The poor will always be with us"
If where you are is bonegrindingly poor-where can you move?
Bankruptcy seizes your possessions.Who can afford food?

Pills maintain some fragile balance.When they run out..
