Gimmie Shelter Analysis

The thread or the theme

That holds this tune

Together is the same

One that rips it open--

The initial guitar

Continues splitting

The whole thing apart--

It is the lightning

Which Jagger complains

Of and which he seeks

Shelter from the rains

Of when it breaks--

We ourselves will shut

Our deepest sills against

His common cries but

There is no defense

To keep out that other

One behind him twinned

His starker brother

Whose keening strings skein

Hymns from one more

Murderous composer

Whose cause is war

Who tears down our door--

Shelter/the home

Is made of language--

But music sunders the poem--

Its rift is like a tongue

Trying to compile all

Words into one word--

One Babel whose walls

Fall beneath its standard--

What the fuck did that flag

Say--the opposite

Of peace/of the page

Is what I must write.
