It was helpful to me for my project on Portrey. I had to find two poems
that had something in common and this one matched perfectly to another one
I had. Thanks!

This poem is different from others. It shows that things can be enjoyable
and interesting even if it's simple. Simple things can be beautiful. A poem
doesn't have to squeeze your mind to the fullest to be considered a good

I think everybody is looking way too deep in Shel's poetry. If the reader
wants to put in their intrepretation, that's great but that doesn't mean
Shel put in "hidden meanings". He was a whimsical and in this case
CHILDREN's poet although open minded adults can also enjoy his work.
However, they shouldn't expect Shel to have morals to all his poem, they
are simply fun and meant to be silly.

ok, this comment section is for people to comment on the poems and their
meanings...not for some retarded people to type anything that comes to
their mind. shel silverstein was a brilliant poet and all the comments that
are insulting him are disgraces. maybe next time you should try to keep
your faggit comments to yourself.
