...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?

BOTH RIGHT & WRONG FAIL US
THEY DO NOT CONVINCE
They are so dogmatic.So imperative
So demanding we do things THEIR way
Even when we do,someone always wants to prove you wrong
Even when there are a million paths up the mountain'
Even when the mountain becomes a tiger of waters
And birds fly out of dragon eyes,and power shifts,uncomfortably
Like those YELLOW VESTS demanding change
Like Greta of 16 ,demanding change
Like Malala,demanding education for girls
Be clear where you are and where you are heading
There is no WRONG way.All ways are valid
Every poem is true somewhere.Every song has wings
And if you seek to berate yourself,well and good
But do believe that ho one believes you are wrong
You are simply exploring the WORLD AS IT IS

And ,as soon as you do-it changes!
