Peggy Lennon, of the Lennon Sisters, was born on April 8, 1941. The Lennon Sisters were a popular American singing quartet in the 1960s. Peggy’s sisters included Dianne, Janet and Kathy Lennon.
Here’s “My Beautiful Balloon,” by the Lennon Sisters:
Inspired by this lofty old tune, here’s my post for H-Day in the A to Z Challenge:
H is for Harmony.
A woman was fit to be tied.
Her husband went Jekyll and Hyde,
So full of hot air,
He’d bellow and blare,
And she by her wits was beside.
At last, at the end of her rope,
Apparently, giving up hope,
She climbed, as he scoffed,
And drifted away from the dope.
Her spouse did continue to roar,
A boisterous, blathering boor.
He ranted and raved;
She sighed, as she waved.
He’d huffed the contraption to soar.
Let this be a lesson much higher
For those who would rage and conspire.
Your own power play
Sends up and away
Your target, as you’re breathing fire.
