Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Imagine no possessions book all the world You-uh-uuh-uh [Chorus] You may say I'm a dreamer. The book "Grapefruit" (Yoko Ono, ) inspired John Lennon to write this song.

Broadcast Music, Inc. considers this song to be one of the most-played in the 20th century. Recording Industry Association of America placed it on the 30th position in its list Songs of the Century. "Imagine all the people, living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one." I think that John Lennon is telling us here that religion is only serving to seperate us and keep us apart, and is the primary cause of hatred and evil in the world.

It's not the love of money that is at the root of all evil, but. Stanza 4. In the fourth stanza, the poet asks us to imagine that there would be no possessions and no need for greed or hunger and thus a brotherhood of man would exist where all the people will be sharing all the world.

In this stanza, the poet talks about material possessions. Materialistic desires lead to greed and thus capitalism, which again divides the society into classes i.e. rich. "Imagine" is a song by English rock musician John Lennon from his album of the same name.

Imagine No Possessions. Really, John Lennon, Can We Rethink This. 08/27/ am ET Updated Hey, listen, I'm all for the enduring message of peace and harmony in the world that John Lennon sings about in "Imagine." I can totally get behind the idea of there being no countries and nothing to kill or die for and even that there.

“Imagine no possessions” Well, there goes science and technology, and pretty much all of human civilization. No possessions. Really, John.
