Lennon's old wheels

entry picture

I wonder if he

my hero John Winston that is

the rhythm guitar playing Beatle

assassinated husband of Yoko

would have agreed with

having his psychedelically painted Rolls Royce

resprayed back to its original colour of 

(I'm presuming) white

as white as white goods.


And I wonder if that Beatle-loved machine

is still rolling on

(like the fantastic never to be forgotten era he so much helped to immortalise)

despite it being far from his possession

far from the Heaven he strolls through

in his whiter than white goods white suit

hands in pockets

and with the same soul-searching look in his eyes


and not having suffered a rusting death

in some unused barn

or even worse

melted down only to re-emerge as components

for military hardware

surely causing him

my hero John Winston that is

# no longer riding on the merry go ro-ound #

to never ever stop turning in his grave   

◄ reacquaintance

in the presence of a short arsed ghost ►
