Yesterday I read a news article about the Rolling Stones:
Today, I was inspired to create a “found” poem from song titles. I am not a huge RS fan but the Rolling Stones have been making music all of my life. While bits of my life are reflected in some of the titles in the poem, the lyrics found within the songs don’t necessarily reflect events or people in my life. (Friends who think they recognize themselves should not think the poem has anything to do with them!) In all, I think the poem works in its own way, and I created it for fun, so… enjoy!
