A Room of My Own: Rooftop Sunshine Haiku

for the Beatles

rooftop sunshine
the air filled with Get Back
and loud cheers

Note:  The Beatles' rooftop concert was the final public performance of the English rock band the Beatles. On 30 January 1969, the band, with keyboardist Billy Preston, surprised a central London office and fashion district with an impromptu concert from the roof of the headquarters of the band's multimedia corporation Apple Corps at 3 Savile Row. In a 42-minute set, the Beatles played nine takes of five songs before the Metropolitan Police asked them to reduce the volume... -- excerpted from the Wikipedia entry, The Beatles' rooftop concert
