Shel Silverstein... in the spirit of war...  Reply with quote  

THE PEACE PROPOSAL
Said General Clay to General Gore
"Really must we fight this sill war
To kill and die is such a bore"
"I quite agree," said General Gore

Said General Gore to General Clay,
"We could go to the beach today
And have some ice cream on the way".
"A grand idea", said General Clay

Said General Clay to General Gore,
"We'll build sand castles on the shore".
Said General Gore, "We'll splash and play".
"Let's leave right now", said General Clay

Said General Gore to General Clay,
"But what if the sea is closed today
And what if the sand's been blown away?"
"A dreadful thought", said General Clay.

Said General Gore to General Clay,
I've always feared the ocean's spray.
And we may drown." "It's true we may.
It chills my blood", said General Clay.

Said General Clay to General Gore,
"My bathing suit is slightly tore.
We better go on with our war."
"I quite agree", said General Gore

Then General Clay charged General Gore
As bullets flew and cannons roared.
And now, alas, there is no more
Of General Clay or General Gore.





that whole harsh video on bush scared the hell out of me, inspired me to post this, if you haven't seen it hope you enjoy... the audio for it is avaialbe on soulseek sometimes and is GENIUS.

Just about everything Shel Silverstein did was genius in one way or another.

I love "Fuck 'em" and "The Great Smokeoff"

"Got Stoned and Missed It" is good too.

It's all about very acute observations of mundane things. Well...that and power. And money. Maybe sex.

Alright...so that's not what it's ALL about, but besides my SUV - y'know?

Yea, the man was great...

I recently found his cd for download on soulseek, freakin at the freakers ball which I never knew existed and I was thrilled...

I've been into this dudes stuff since I was a wee child... my dad hooked me up with light in the attic and where the sidewalk ends and the giving tree, or gee... but yea, he had some great poems geared towards adults too...

The great smoke off audio is orgasmic.
