Deadhead Poetry: Ode To John Lennon By Glenn A Segal

For the man who turned me round
I wrote these words I sing this song
He was the one to raise his voice
When we all had something to say

A beautiful person with a means of expression
A noble teacher who hated oppression

Sometimes the anger
Over rides what’s near
But-you can’t help the cause
Unless you see it clear

I knew this man through song and word
But can’t believe what I just heard
John Lennon’s killed--Shot to death
A planet’s voice—Put to rest

His soul has rose Beyond us all
I’m sure he hopes—We’re walking tall

A special Beatle
The one that said
Give peace a chance
And now he’s dead

Late last night—I stayed awake
Why is he dead—For heaven’s sake

A little man took him from me
In the hope of a place in history
A selfish mind did this thing
What joy to the world—Did this man bring?

What rock & Roll has done for me
Lennon did for humanity
Love and learn is what he said
To see him shot has turned my head
