...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?

GUNS BY THEMSELVES SIT ON SHELVES
LOCKED&WITH PRICE TAGS
It is when they are in the hands of children&elders
that accidents,negligence or violence cause damage
Simple enough to lock all guns away from children
Harder to pry guns from the hands of elders
and from those who use weapons for crimes of violence..
We authorize police and army to kill(if necessary)
We also equip them with training in non-lethal responses
Here is where casualties can be reduced-
by focusing upon  appropriate (proportionate)responses to violence
So that murder by police is stopped
And massacres at civilian spaces might be limited
Something must be done-before we become immune
to the deaths of civilians living in a free fire zone
Casualties in the war on rationality
