Keep getting syntax error message from new MENUITEM

Good day.

I'm baffled as to why I keep getting a syntax error from this menu item I added to the menu file.

MENUITEM "&Show IPv4 addresses (all VMs)" , "SEND" , "for  i in {5,6} {8..9}; do echo "";  ssh -q -o "StrictHostKeyChecking no" 192.168.210.$i "uname -n;/usr/sbin/ip a| grep 'inet ' | grep -v host | grep -Eo '[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}' | grep -v 255$";done\n"
The only way I can get it to launch with the new menu item is when I omit the double-quotes preceding 'uname' and after the '255$'. But that compromises the command after 'uname -n'.

Please advise.
