A bizarre letter from the late Beatle John Lennon has recently come up and has been making rounds in the online community. Lennon’s official Instagram profile posted a cryptic write up of the late artist, entitled the ABECEDARIUM, on the 3rd of June, 2019. The letter reads:


A is for Parrot which we can plainly see
B is for glasses which we can plainly see

E is for binoculars I’ll get in five
F is for Ethel who lives next door
G is for orange which we love to eat when we can get them because they come from abroad
H is for England and (Heather)
I is for monkey we see in the tree
J is for parrot which we can plainly see
K is for shoetop we wear to the ball

Take it to pieces and mend it with glue

The certain letter seems to be a part of the 1969 exhibit Bag One, which was a collection of drawings and lithographs by John Lennon, which detailed his wedding ceremony and honeymoon with wife Yoko Ono, including one of their bed-ins for peace. You can read the letter in its original form below.
