...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?


BORDERS ATTRACT WALLS/WARS-&REFUGEES
LONG BEFORE US-NO WALLS/NO BORDERS
After us-different walls,different borders
For languages and customs come with invasions
Curry now the top food in England
Spanish the second language in Texas
Even when Black Irish from the Spanish Armada
and North Korean schools still within Japan
Culture comes after the troops depart
Crimea/Ukraine Russian speakers
Cyprus for both Turks and Greeks
Who claims the New Cuisine?
How many Chinatowns in cities?
Hadrian's Wall still tiny as tourists
Yet Scotland still seeks Independence
Romans never conquered Cornwall
Who speaks Cornish?Gaelic?After all-
Borders are linguistic and cultural
You do not need a Wall @all..

No defensible moral framework regards foreigners as less deserving of…
