Re: Pete Seeger died today

He had a great twisted sense of humor. I am sure he would like to be composted and put into a garden, so he can live on for ever.


Quote:
Lyrics from "In Dead Earnest"

If I should die before I wake,
All my bone and sinew take
Put me in the compost pile
To decompose me for a while.

Worms, water, sun will have their way,
Returning me to common clay
All that I am will feed the trees
And little fishes in the seas.

When radishes and corn you munch,
You may be having me for lunch
And then excrete me with a grin,
Chortling, "There goes Lee again."

'Twill be my happiest destiny
To die and live eternally
Heard this this morning in a replay of an interview with him.
