Keith Richards Found Poem

Mick wasn’t allowed to sing
Let’s spend the night together.

We had to sing
Let’s spend some time together.

Talk about shades and nuances.
What does that mean

especially to CBS?
A night is not allowed.

Unbelievable. Used
to make us laugh.

It was pure Lenny Bruce.
Titty is a dirty word?

What’s dirty,
the word or the titty?
