“Some Dead, Some Gone” – by Patty Mooney

Big Brother & The Holding Company

Jim Morrison was born 30 years too soon.

His music and the way he talked.

And Janis Joplin was a sailor.

She was a rough woman.

But she could sing.

I got to meet Jimi Hendrix,

the Mamas and the Papas,

Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis,

Iron Butterfly,

The Animals.

They put on a show at a place called Red Dog

in Denver, a warehouse.

Look up in the ceiling,

all kinds of weird stuff.

We’d go in there, take acid

with the music, the people,

it was a trip.

And from there I went into

the jungles of Viet Nam.

you might want to check it out.

The room was this big.

A swing thing, dancing.

He’s going to sing

Disco Fever.

He’s going to dance and sing.

If you like dark

this is delicious.

People call it

a Session Beer,

something you can sit

around and drink,

drink all day.

A room filled with a hundred beers,

beers I’ve never heard of.

A thousand kegs of beer,

all different.

You can’t do it.

“Syrah” – by Patty Mooney

Good Year for the Wine

“Syrah” reminds me of the kind

of guy who wears cowboy boots

with a tuxedo.

Rustic, manly

and yet, elegant.

That’s Syrah.
