...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?


THE POEM THAT ENDED A WAR
"TO MY SOLDIER SON"by Zseni Varnai
Addressed to her own son,who may have been shooting at her
under the Kaiser  to suppress Hungarian Independence

"TELL ME LIES ABOUT VIETNAM"by Adrian Mitchell
Broadcast on the BBC in 1965 and pivotal
in Britain withdrawing from the Vietnam War

"MANCHESTER LOVE POEM"by Tony Walsh
After the bombing of Manchester Arena,his poem
unified the spirit of Manchester,and was adopted worldwide

"CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE"(Manchester Young Poets)
Loving their city back to life via poems of praise of place
Making beauty of urban streetscapes,peacefully articulated

YOUR NEXT POEM OF PEACE&POWER
which will restore sanity,the Seasons,and common sense

So that Beauty,Truth and Reason may once again Resurrect..
