Anyone in Florida or other coastal spaces, or inlanders yearning to return to summer beaches, may enjoy lending their ears to the punny poems by gifted artist & creative, Shel Silverstein, in Underwater Land.
“He sole it to a loan shark” & other silliness stirs the sand.
I’m feeling creative in notebooks & at the keyboard. A few words from Shel about that:
“Put something silly in the world
That ain’t been there before.”
And with Labor Day fresh in mind & thinking of freedom, I consider how the poet’s absurd lines create calls for censorship, from a librarian’s post on YouTube.
