Oh the best laid schemes of mice and men...This week I'd scheduled a post about Lennon's last best song, and a guest post from Nicholas Tozier on Lennon's worst musical moment. But work and songwriting got in the way. So this will have to suffice for now...
(seriously what schemes does a mouse concoct? 1) Run along the wall 2) find cheese 3) repeat?)
Don't tell me that this is a great song. I know it is. Which makes today's 'lyrical crime against humanity' all the more heinous. The scene of the crime is the second bridge
I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too.
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you.
I call this particular crime Rhyme's Disease or "I paid good money for this rhyming dictionary, dammit!".
"Ladies and gentleman of the jury, I put it to you that the defendant was diverted and perverted before finally becoming inverted"
"Your honour, counsel would state in mitigation that at no time had the defendant been sufficiently alerted"I rest my case.
