Description
 
It was a poem about a girl that wanted a pony that first landed Shel Silverstein in trouble. Published in his 1981 publication of illustrated children's poetry, A Light in the Attic, "Little Abigail and the Beautiful Pony" angered parents for the supposed glorification of suicide: horse obsessed Abigail stops eating and sleeping and eventually dies,"All because of a pony/That her parents wouldn't buy." Or maybe it was the closing lines that pushed parents to try and ban the book, "This is a good story/ To read to your folks/When they won't buy/You something you want." Thankfully you don't have to go through all that to get this tee-shirt, although if you are bigger than XXL then maybe don't eat for a little while and THEN order. We have this one in WHITE and GREY (Bella Canvas tee).
