Imagine…

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lennon
John and Yoko
kneel before no-one
yet give peace a chance
east meets west
a love-in
before adoring crowds
at one, together

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Lennon
Neil
given no peace
loved
by celtic crowds
but bigotry intrudes
and excludes, with north and south
divides

some people aren’t listening, John

in 2002, Neil Lennon was forced to retire from playing International football for Northern Ireland, after receiving death threats

and to this day, sectarian songs are still chanted at Windsor Park for International matches
