    #2392179 - 03/01/04 08:16 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

Wow, I never knew Shel Silverstein was quite "out there." I always loved his poems as a kid, and always assumed he was just the straightedge children's author. I wonder what all the parents who buy their kids these books would say if they knew some of the shit he's doing?


GET MY ROCKS OFF
by Shel Silverstein
Some men need some killer weed
and some men need cocaine.
Some men need some cactus juice
to purify their brain.
Some man need 2 women,
and some need alcohol.
Everybody needs a little something
but, Lord, I need it all...

holy shit thank you

edit:

yeah, I always knew shell was a fuckin anarchist hipppie.  Its blatantly obvious in his children's poetry:

"When the light turns green you go
When the light turns red you stop
But what do you do
When the light turns blue
with orange and lavender spots?"

:grin: classic :thumbup:

If you've never read "Uncle Shelby's ABZ's"  I would highly reccommend it.  Dont let the title fool you: its not a children's book.

peace, pot, and microdot!

"Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right" ~The Grateful Dead

"Religionists, with their guaranteed eventual paradise, of which they know nothing, taking it all on 'faith,' can't be expected to understand or sympathize with those with a yen to storm the Gate of Heaven and see for themselves what all the praying's about!" ~Robert Hunter

egocentrism is bangin on the door
self-destructive selflessness
seeps out from the core
alone - eyes closed - an empty room
i'm curled on the floor
choose nothing, thus deciding
all the nothing i've in store.
