...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?"

ON HAVING ENOUGH SOCKS
ONE SOCK IS NEVER ENOUGH
Two socks is a pair(soon to be divorced
Three socks is a threesome(someone always misses out)
Four socks is two pair(beaten by three of a kind
Five socks is a pentagon of pleasures
Six socks  a jazz sextet.Seven a Heaven of choices
Eight socks an octopus.Nine a drawer full of choices
Ten socks argue like a Catholic family.Someone's always out.
Eleven?Odd number again.To find that solo sock is an infuriating proposition..
Especially when it has no equivalent among its alleged mates.
Twelve socks a solid foundation.Stable as disciples.

But then again-one of them was Judas!
