...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?

YOU CANNOT NEGOTIATE WITH A SNAKE
AND A CROCODILE WILL NOT LISTEN TO REASON
And the only reason we defer to them
lays in their capacity to kill and poison
If ants were skyscraper height
like dinosaurs were imagined
we would be deferential/not kill them with poison
There are some people we call "monsters"
because of their inhumane actions-Pol Pot,Mao,Stalin
Butchers of their own people.Unforgivable.
Others we project monster masks upon
because they diverge from our opinions.Look at actions and results
Damage can come from mistakes as well as willed intentions.
When it comes to taking responsibility/who can claim wisdom?
