The Penguin John Lennon

I've ordered a book called "The Penguin John Lennon."
That title brings some rather silly thoughts to my mind.
1: John Lennon was not a Penguin; he was a Beatle. The
Penguins were an entirely different group.

Another whimsical thought is the picture that title puts into
my head!

Word Play

I've always enjoyed playing with words. (Come to think of it, if I didn't enjoy it, could I really call it playing with words?)  I love writing poems where the sounds are more important than the sense.
I was going to put several of them in this one post, but I've decided to share them one at a time instead.

This one was written in the 1980s.


GREEN-SONG IN L

Lila, in a lovely olive dress,
lying alone on the emerald lawn
lightly licking a lime lollipop.

This is disgraceful.
Prayers are definitely needed.
