As you're probably well aware, there are three books of poetry by John Lennon: In His Own Write, A Spaniard in the Works*, and Skywriting by Word of Mouth. I like all three - I don't always understand them all, but I like them.

My favorites:

IHOW - I Sat Belonely, All Abord Speeching, and Nicely Nicely Clive

SitW - Snore Wife and some Several Dwarts, The Fat Budgie, and The Wumberlog (or The Magic Dog)

SbWoM - The Balled of John and Yoko, A Complete Change of Pacemaker, The Importance of Being Erstwhile, and Never Cross a Horse with a Loose Woman

I hope I spelled that all correctly, with his word play  and all. As you can see, I'm guilty of liking the ones that most closely resemble a story. The rambling ones that morph into pun after pun can be too much. But I try my best to keep up. a-hard-days-night-george-9

So, if you've read them, what are your thoughts? If you haven't, why not?

 

* I spent too much on this one, but I just had to have the same cover as the one in HELP!.

As we all know, my mum keeps a close watch on my funds, and hasn't allowed me to buy them just yet. Plus, I just lost my part-time job (long story) so I have no money. a-hard-days-night-paul-11 Though, I have read some online- brilliant as always!

Doesn't Paul also have a book of poetry out? Someone showed it to me in my Writer's Craft class, I believe.

Paul's should be interesting. I'll look into that thanks. (Sorry about the job.)

Edit: Here are two, now that you have time to spare.

WINS Radio Announcer: "And tomorrow night at 7:00 The Beatles read their own poetry on a documentary, "Meet The Beatles", done all over the world."

Paul: "Really? I don't understand this.  We ain't written no poetry."

Yeah, John's books are awsome.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I loved Good Boy Nigel. John always had a dark sense of humour...
