John Lennon

John Lennon once said that above us is only sky.
The Space Station has sadly laid his claim to rest.
But at making us all think hard and laugh loud,
Our good friend John was clearly the best.

“We all shine on, like the moon, the stars, and the sun.”
“All you need is love,” he said with feeling.
He stayed in bed with Yoko to protest the war.
"War is over if you want it", is extremely appealing.

“Those in the cheap seats clap your hands,”
He exclaimed with a twinkle in his eye.
“The rest of you can rattle your jewellery.”
At highlighting inequality, John was the guy.

At only 40 he had so much more to say.
Cut down in his prime by Chapman and his gun.
We would have listened to his calls for peace and love.
You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.

John's influence remains in his music and his words.
Imagine all the people is a legacy that's very strong.
"All we are saying is give peace a chance."
That's a message that surely can't be wrong.
