haha the person who wanted "comments 36 & 37" off must've gotten them
off... whats ironic is that now that persons comment is 37... And for those
who are referring to how "she" is a good poet... you obviously dont know
what your talking about cuz Shel Silverstein is a guy!! And someone said he
should be hit for writing this poem... well he's dead... and if you dont
like the poem get over it and look into counseling for your aggression...
This poem is funny... reminds me of HIS other poem.."Sick" Shel writes
about things other people can relate to... Not everything has to talk about
the bad things in life... Alot of his poems talk about things that happen
everyday or just funny twists that expand your imagination... Good Day!!

YEAH, to all those people that say "mhmm, this is a poem about a very
disorganized individual who keeps a very messy living area." yeah....DUH
isnt that like the most obvious thing ever? and the funny part is they try
to make themselves sound all intelligent by using more syllables. ugh.

I found this poem was excellent, especially, at the end. I felt it was
funny at the end, maybe because my room is a mess too.

Shel Silverstein writes wonderful poems about practically everything from
animals to doors to sidewalks to whatever!! They are great, especially for
younger children.
