I didn’t know this is where the sidewalk ends…

Hey Xers! Did you know Shel Silverstein wrote regularly for Playboy? Who knew the children’s author had a bawdy side?

Lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy Jane.

She wants a drink of water so she waits and waits and waits and waits and waits for it to rain.

I guess with poems like that you would need another gig so writing for playboy sounds 'bout right.

BTW, Is he still alive?

Nope Shel passed on about 10 years ago.

Not only did he write for Playboy - he was a song writer as well! "A Boy Named Sue" comes to mind
