Gentle Fräulein,
Sprechen sie beat?
The Hamburg clubs
would move your feet for
music that would stand
the test to beat the band.
Your eye was keen,
you caught them raw
and helped to shape
them there. But the greatest
gift that you did give
came in the guise of hair,
the look they honed
was purely you, the cut
was universal.
It seemed to be
the world would see a
gender role reversal.
But fifty years have come
and gone and still their
look would linger, you seemed
to have the Beatle’s pulse
beneath your shutter finger!
