Sometimes we are too busy minding other people's business/lives that we
have forgotten to reflect on our own. Be slow to make judgements; you might
end up looking like the fool!

This poem reminds me so much of my room, and probably every other teen's
room. I love Shel Silverstein! I thought this poem was GREAT!

First I think comments 36 and 37 should be taken off because they are very
wrong and for kids to see. I love this poem and Shel Silverstein and I
might just use this peom for my assignment.

I am a big fan of silverstein's poems they are great. It lightens up the
mood his poetry, brings smiles to faces, and sometimes gives us good
laughs! His poems aren't as "serious" when we compare them to others but it
is still great. Even if you don't like poetry you can like Silverstein's
work they are very comical and great of course! I have Falling Up and A
Light in the Attic. These poems are good for people of all ages.

I love your poems. I have read the Book Where the Sidewalk ends and I could
hardly put the book down. My teachers kept getting on me for reading in
class. I have read your other books too. They are also great.

Shel Silverstein is known for funny poems but this one is true to many
children's rooms how do i know i have 1 but thats beside the point. It may
not be his best poem but it is still fun to read fo children and adults
alike.
