Not What Lennon Imagined




Imagine
Imagine there's no heaven.
It's easy if you try.
No hell below us,
Above us, only sky.
Imagine all the people
living for today...
Imagine there's no countries.
It isn't hard to do.
Nothing to kill or die for.
No religion too.
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...
Imagine no possesions.
I wonder if you can.
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man.
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...
You may say
I'm a dreamer,
but Im not the only one.
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
I imagine when John Lennon wrote this beautiful song, he believed it would touch many people's hearts, but not their asses. As I was admiring one of my daughter's diapers today, I noticed some faint writing. I looked closer and was surprised to find a few line's from the Walrus' song. Wal-Mart's generic brand of diapers, White Cloud, feature the drawings of Lennon along with some of his most famous words, all to be displayed on the buxom behind of your baby. Goo goo g'joob.

Wow, John Lennon's artwork on diapers. He's turning over in his grave. I guess Yoko needed some money or something.
