Happy Birthday John Lennon

Happy b'day John, sorry Lennon;
Hope you well up there in the heaven.
Liverpool's son and peace beacon,
With fab four and alone you rocked like a maven.
I try hard to 'imagine',
A world with only sky and no heaven.
Chanted 'give peace a chance' from nine to seven;
It all came down to a question.
Would you been able to get rid of the hate vermin?
Had not Chapmen hit you in the back that night in New York at eleven.
Your departure left us millions shaken;
Left you us forsaken.
Still we sing your sweet tunes of 'imagine';
Happy b'day John Lennon.

John Winston Ono Lennon, (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980) was an English singer-songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles and, with Paul McCartney, formed one of the most successful songwriting partnerships of the 20th century.
