A recent review of Skeleton Key: A Dictionary for Deadheads featured a Dr. Seuss-style limerick from the review's author. We tweeted that out, in honor of The Grateful Dead's historic "Fare Thee Well" shows in Chicago this weekend and received a new one back from one of our readers. It's pretty good. How about you? Do you have one you'd like to share?
The original from the review was this:
“Runners run to snag a tasty seat
And hope the Dead bust out ‘Shakedown Street’
The twirlers twirl, the dancers dance,
The tapers tape and leave no flip to chance
Let’s toast a toast to Jerry and the boyses
As they make the most grateful of all grateful noises
And raise yet another to the most peaceful of tribes
The Deadheads bedecked in tie dye and good vibes.”
"With incense and tie dye
And dirty bare feet
In the aisle we would dance
No need for a seat
Not looking for a miracle today
I'll catch a cab from the Ritz, where I'll stay.
So fare thee well, not much more to say
You're not the only ones
With a touch of grey."
