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

I love Shel. he has the most touching poems ever. sometimes when i read
them i cry myself to sleep every night because i love the poems so much.
this poem in perticular really got to me. i love it so much. i told my
wife that i love this poem more than her and then she divorced me. its ok
though because atleast i get to read more of these types of poems. i have
all of my favorite poems mounted on my wall in my room. i read each of
them every night before i go to bed then i dream about them

First, the person who wrote comment 10 should have theirs taken off, but as
far as the actual poem goes i find it quite good, though SHel didn't do his
usual over-exaggeration.

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.
