The 'Other' Shel Silverstein

silverstein.jpgThanks to my college-age son, I've rediscovered Shel Silverstein and his adult writings. All those years of reading "The Giving Tree" to my sons had made me forget the edgy songs, poems, and cartoons Silverstein produced. Did you know that he wrote "Boy Named Sue" and "Cover of the Rolling Stone" and "Sylvia's Mother?" I did too, but had forgotten. This great site has a wide sampling of his work including the poem that made my day today, "The Perfect High."

The site also includes the version of "Uncle Shelby's ABZ" that was originally published in Playboy in 1961. The hard copy book is available at Amazon along with sloppy sardonic musical treasures like "Freakin at the Freakers Ball."

When you are sick to death of our politically correct world, take a big hit of Shel.
