  • "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 – All who Served,
    What most Got – Not Deserved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Thank you, Bob! A moving poem (yes, this a poem not just a rhyme), written from the heart without your usual tongue in cheek. You Vietnam Vets were sent through hell and then got unfairly lambasted for it. Though slightly before my time, I still feel sorrow and anger for that. Again I truly thank you. Great video for the great song and your great poem.
