...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?"

NOW WE ONLY HAVE HER WORDS
to cajole and caress,to stir and to soothe
When she was with us,she valued words
She saw their possible power and misuse
She disdained censorship and control
"Freedom is the ability to free others"
Language can be orders ,commands,dictation
It can be songs,lyrics,poetry ,drama ,liberation
Use and context is what relevance determines
"You cannot eat yesterday's breakfast"
Nor can we live in the past(nor the future)
It is our Sacred Duty to sing the NOW!
To Open all Channels for Understanding
So every word is a Chant,a Plan,A Dream,an Anthem
Every sentence a Life Foundation.
