Partly John

a nature boy
with angry eyes
behind his venom
shined the skies
endless in their certainty
that one day
the world would free
itself from hatred
from its pain
and sing aloud
of peace refrained
a passion his
to plant the seeds
in our hearts
is love we need
it’s been a while
since he’s been gone
but in us
does his love live on
if so then
we’re all partly John

The title of Partly John is sort of inspired by a poem from John Lennon’s anthology ” In His Own Write” called Partly Dave.
