“Gimmie Shelter” – 1969


Haunting Song – Rolling Stones,
Repressed Thoughts – Make no Bones.
I was Drafted – Did not Run,
Hell for Some – Just Begun.

Love this Tune – Don’t know Why,
Times I Listen – Want to Cry.
Was no Hero – Conscious Try,
But I Served – Did not Die.

Genius Intro – Called a Riff,
Interpretations – What’s the Diff?
Mary Clayton – Searing Voice,
Brought to Life – I Rejoice.

Turn Away – Face it Front?
Like so Many – Was a Grunt.
Respect Veterans – Those that Served,
What some Got – Not Deserved!!!!!!!!!!!!!
