Analysis: Trivia

Brain Snacks: Tasty Tidbits of Knowledge

Shel Silverstein wrote songs for such greats as Johnny Cash. How stinkin' cool is that? (Source.)

Our poet served in the US Army in both Japan and Korea during the 1950s. Surely, the army didn't knock all the silliness out of him. (Source.)

Where the Sidewalk Ends, the book in which this poem was published, was Silverstein's first published collection of poetry. What a way to start! (Source.)
