More Posthumous Publications from Shel Silverstein?

College Humor published “I Think They’re Running Out of Material For New Shel Silverstein Books,” a list of imaginary books from the late author’s archives.

In the satirical piece, these imaginary Silverstein books contain poems that were never meant to be read, half-finished musings and illustrations, unused material from previous works, and grocery lists written in verse.

Here’s a snippet from List #47: “Sunscreen for my head and a comb for my beard / So much mayonnaise that people look at me weird / Oh and Funyuns.” What items make up your rhyming grocery list?

Silverstein’s kidlit fans have to wait until September for Every Thing On It. News editor Sarah Weinmann, who tweeted the piece, notes: “That piece is funny, but believe me, there is a *ton* of unpublished Shel Silverstein material (for adults) sitting around gathering dust.”
