Imagine There’s No Weapons

Imagine There’s No Weapons April 4, 2013

Things have only gotten worse since 1980 when it comes to weapons and violence, including accidental and intentional killings of innocent children. This is a picture of John Lennon’s blood-spattered glasses which he wore the day he was killed.

Here’s a little lyrical tribute I’ve written to John, to be sung to the tune of his classic hit— Imagine.

“Imagine there’s no weapons
It’s easy if you try,
Nothing to kill or maim for,
And no good reason why
Imagine all the people living like they pray.

“Imagine there’s no nukes
It isn’t hard to do,
No threat of annihilation
Swords into plowshares too.
Imagine all the people living life in peace.

“You may say I’m just a dreamer,
But I’m not the only one,
Isaiah saw all this coming
And the new creation won.

“Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people Sharing peace and joy.

“You may say I’m a dreamer,
But I’m not the only one,
MLK urged us to this,
There’s still much to be done.”

BW3 April 4th ’13 (45 years after MLK’s death)
