Subject: RE: 2019 Obit: Robert Hunter, Grateful Dead Lyricist
I always thought this Hunter verse from Dire Wolf captured the ethos of the Dead-

When I awoke, the Dire Wolf, six hundred pounds of sin,
Was grinning at my window, all I said was "Come on in".
Don't murder me...

(and that was a good pun, Mrrzy, I didn't pick up on it first time around)
