Give Peace A Chance

I let John Lennon loose at the zoo.
Right away he wanted to start a revolution.

He gave the monkeys marijuana.
He gave LSD to wildebeest.

Soon the anacondas were riding Hondas
and Kawasaki’s to Milwaukee’s Finest.

Tigers and lions gave peace a chance.
Became vegetarians, if you can Imagine that.

The giraffe had a delayed reaction---
its neck being so long, its stomach so far away.

The zookeepers shouted Hey Dude,
but even fossilized Lucy was in the sky with diamonds.
