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!.
