As I read the poem it became clear in my head what it was about, though it
seems like it's simply a poem about a messy room, what I get from it is
that old saying "people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones"

Shel Silverstien has such a non-rhyming volcabulary list that has such
small, but discriptive words. He is very amazing with all of his work and
poems. Another one of his poems I like is the pencil one, and the snowball
one. Thank you.

Shel Silverstein is a poet who can write anything even about a garbage. He
is a brilliant poet. This is one of the best example of poetry.

This poem reiminds me so much of my room long ago. the socks, the
textbooks, the underwear... it all is my past... but the future is looking
