...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?

VARIETIES OF CORN WERE

NOW RARE AS SEED BANKS
Food Corporations prefer monotypes
So we get KELLOGGS style corn
one color,one breed,one market..
Colors and flavors of divergent breeds
from purple blue and orange corn
to different shapes and forms
are banished from our plates and eyes and minds..
when only one type is served to us in our time..
Think Indigenous.Seed-based crops .
Think cornucopia.Variety of grains.
Think of what was and will be once again
When factory farms and corporate food chains are broken
and we are freed from MONSANTO regulations..
LONG LIVE MAIZE!LONG LIVE ALL NATIVE VARIETIES OF CORN!
