The Queen and the Ghost on the Mersey
As the Queen sailed into the Mersey,
all her passengers were awed to see
a ghostly statue: a long-haired lady
tall as Liverpool's gleaming spires.
Consulted, a local seer read his tea
leaves, gazed into his crystal ball:
"She was no long-haired lady at all,"
he opined. Instead, he then predicted,
"The vision was a time slip that showed
us a glimpse of Liverpool of the future,
John Lennon depicted as Lord Liberty.
Imagine -- Peace and Love for All!"
