...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?

CLOSING DOWN
THIS IS THE YEAR WHEN SEA WORLD CLOSED
and children were taken down to the actual ocean
to see beached whales and dead plastic dolphins

THIS IS THE YEAR WHEN ZOOS &CIRCUSES CLOSED DOWN
and children were taken into wild forests
to see the actual habitat of surviving species

THIS IS THE YEAR WHEN PLASTIC STRAWS WERE ABOLISHED
as well as  all single use plastics(plastic water bottles,plastic clothes pins etc
Molecules were found that ate the past and recycled our future

THIS IS THE YEAR WHEN SPACE X FAILED
and we could no longer reach the International Space Station
so we had to deal with polluted Superfund sites on earth
and dedicate all military funds to flood relief and climate change

THIS IS THE YEAR OF CONTINUOUS CHANGES
We are still changing...Feel it yet?
You are the last ones to feel human
Before the robots take over..
