Calling it either John Lennon's or Yoko Ono's alone is an exaggeration and oversimplification. While it was true that John Lennon got his inspiration of the song and most of the lyrics from Yoko Ono's Grapefruit, he composed the music, played and sang the song, and both of them produced the song. 

Striking Syria is a grave error. 


since lovenatalya called it a "Lovely Lennon song," it seems that  lovenatalya  is admitting that he/she exaggerated and oversimplified

Hahahaa... not so fast, my good friend. You would not think I did not see that easy logical trap coming one step ahead, would you? The appearance is deceiving and the implication is a non sequitur. Read my paragraph again, my friend. :-D  The key word is alone. When A and B jointly owns an object O, O is A's, O is also B's. So both katastrofa and I were logically correct, and neither exaggerated nor simplified. The only part that may be up to debate is the word "alone" may not be the best choice. "exclusively" may have been better and more unequivocal.

I wrote that paragraph to clarify the possible ambiguity of the ownership raised by my statement as well as katastrofa's, albeit both were correct.

Spoke too hastily, my friend, yet again. :-)

I agree. Quite magnanimous of you. Utopian ideals should not get into the wrong hand. We have a government for that.
BTW if you know your history, Lennon beat the System.

Yes, absolutely, Cuchulainn. By the way, when I said "that would be marvelous" I was referring to what ISayMoo's line "Wilmotters talking maths in peace" rather than the "imagine no possessions" part of the lyrics. I agree with sensible things anybody says.
By "beat the System" are you referring to Lennon's battle with the US immigration authority and the court battle against the FBI? Maybe his political activism as well?

Has anyone ever compared you to a certain crustacean from a certain cartoon?

Whether you're right or not, there is no use arguing, lovenatalya. See it for what it is, a microcosmos / small world, shrug it off and move on to more interesting things.


Indeed it's a small world. Public displays of unprofessional behaviour, even under a pseudonym, may not good for someone's career.


Have you had that experience before?
