The Last Time

By Hilary Sideris

Brian played lead,

Vox white teardrop


& Fender amp,

the Wall of Sound.


Our first song with

a signature Stones riff,


it goes back to the dawn

of time, lucky for us—


we stole the chorus

from the Staple Singers,


gave the verse

a Teddy Boy twist.


Sonny Bono, working

for Phil Spector,


drove our limo

to the Biltmore.
