Poem: Mr. Mojo Risin'

The following is in dedication to and for any of those familiar with The Doors a/o Jim Morrison.
This piece will be self explanatory to any Doors fan, but for those who are not that familiar, there’s the breakdown at the bottom after the poem.

Mr. Mojo Risin’

        He was a rider on the storm
Waxed poetic, yet misunderstood.
And though he loved her madly
Still, his life, she took.

Here was an unknown soldier
ed by an L.A.Woman.
While at a whiskey bar he whispered to her
Hello I love you… wanna be your backdoor man.”

You should have seen,
how she lit his fire.
With her stronger-than-dirt desire.
How she loved him two times and more.

But those were strange days indeed,
For soon, his own door would close.
And gaie Paris would see,
What was to be,
The End...

of Mr. Mojo Risin'
