I think this poem is really good and it gives me someones elses view on how
my room is most of the time. I love it!

this poem is very intriguing... although it excentuates a messy room it
does use common material from every day life

well, this poem is not very enticing. it's all about messiness, who cares
about that?
i don't see why it's so great.

I really didn't like this poem. Not one bit. Though it might be enjoyable
for small children. I really don't see how it got to number one.

This is a mildly amusing but certainly not a brillaint poem. The theme
of untidiness is common and has been exploited with greater finesse than is
shown here.

This poem is great, it's not too long nor too short.

this guy's lame. i bet he actually viewed his own poem a quater of a
million times just to get it ranked. what a joke. this guy would be lucky
to one day just be Bronzestein.
