...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?

DRAWING YOUR ATTENTION
TO THIS MOST PERFECT SPRING DAY
Away from exploding bombers and vain Presidents
Away from distractive entertainments
Away from wars and walls and want
Go right now to your Spring Garden
If you have none,create one!
Permaculture if in city
Earth bound where earth abounds
Plant the seeds of future forests
Let fruit trees bloom in abundance
Reinvent Johnny Appleseed and John Bunyan
Let Spring be loose,wild,feral,free and unaffiliated!
Let this moment be as green and growing as your Imagi/Nation
Reclaim back your time and eyes and heart and soul and mind

Walk out into your Spring Garden.Look!and see what you can find..
