A poem about a poet, what I set out to write
Could I do him justice, could I do it right?

An inspiration to many, I couldn’t make a joke
Reportedly a gentleman, a really decent bloke

Write a clever rhyme, do you really think I could?
A poem about John Lennon could I make it good.

Maybe I could make it funny, a total, ripping screamer
A poem about a Beatle but you may say I’m a dreamer
