Happy Birthday!

Shel Silverstein

born 9/25/1932
(d.May 10, 1999)

        Well, I'd like to sing a song about the chain gang
        And swingin' twelve pound hammers all the day,
        And how a I'd like to kill my captain
        And how a black man works his life away, but...

        What do you do if you're young and white and Jewish?
        And you've never swung a hammer against a spike?
        And you've never called a water boy
        Early in the morning
        And your only chain is the chain that's on your bike? Yes,
        Your only chain is the chain on your bike.

                "Folk Singer's Blues" by Shel Silverstein
