He was right. Its not all about romance. This poem makes my penis very
erect. Fidel Castro is my grampa.
Hitler is my other grampa.

To me, this poem is about having an imagination. I think the poet chooses
to write about a polar bear because they live in a cold climate so he puts
the polar bear in the freezer. He is having FUN with the reader! I really
like that he invents some of his own words to write the poem putting his
signature on it. The polar bear becomes like a human because he is eating
the rice and using the butter. It also reminds me of what you think might
happen when you go out for the day and leave the pets at home. Did the
cats play dress up or did the dogs play cards? What do animals do when we
are not at home? Are they really sleeping? It makes you wonder. Shel has
many poems and stories about what kids like to do. We are all kids at
heart so there is no shame in admitting that these poems are wonderful. The
rhyme scheme of the poem is musical and reminds me of music played at a
carousel. Come on, it is important to have an imagination.
