Lennon’s Sweat

Rock & roll is a notion,
By which we can assess,
People establishment;
Let me rephrase it again,
Rock & roll is a notion,
By which we can assess,
People establishment… ours!
***
Despite being a non-believer
The fact is overwhelming
And that's certainty.
***
The dream was overturned,
What can I say?
The dream is overturned.
***
Yesterday, a daydream revolt,
Nowadays an amusing leisure
Everybody's looking for a thrill.
***
Merchandise and consumer
Are no longer distinguishable
Marx’s guess is now establishment.
***
Lennon is dead, groupies are aged
And grown-ups are rich… but now
I'm neither john nor paul,
I'm neither mike nor keith,
And so dear friends,
You just have to realize,
Not just the dream is over
But never was…
******
[Based on a song by Lennon himself: "God"]*
