I completely agree with the whole "glass house" thing. Silverstein didn't
always have a deeper meaning behind all his poems, but I believe this one
definitely did. His poems are great for any age and I believe this poem
was a funny way of getting across the point of not judging anything because
you may be exactly that which you are describing.

All those who criticised the poem as being 'tarded' etc, or those who liked
it because they thought it 'describes a messy room, just like many people's
rooms' don't get the hidden meanings.

Well.

It a good poem and it reminds me of my daughter's room. I had to show her
this poem to see if she could improve her room. Thanks
