Lines written in the Tudor House on the 30thAnniversary of the death of John Lennon

 

Hey Johnnie

You hook-nosed bastard

You made specs sexy

And played a mean Rickenbacker

Attention seeking nihilist

Gob shite scouser

Merciless poison-tongued delinquent

Hiding the quiet man inside

To my dad’s amazement

You grew up and flew away

Sharing your dreams

Leaving your nightmare screams in some therapist’s waste bin

You reached out and embraced the world as it is

And it shot you.

Well put, had a profound affect on me btw unless it is mere chance you happen to have commented on some of the defining points of Lennon, not just the obvious scouser reference - Dave
