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.
