This poem is like the way poeple use words these days and don't even know
what they're saying and if you say one word, it can mean something
different. Sorry if that made you think too much. This poem is adorable and
should be read by everyone.

I have always been a lover of poetry....Shel Silverstein was the first poet
I was introduced to way back in elementary school. I admire his work and
this was the first poem I heard from him and I love it!! Now I am 25 and I
still can appreciate his poetry.

I can't say that this poem is my favorite poem from Shell Silverstein's
books, but it's definetly one of them. Shell Silverstein is my favorite
poem teller ever. And that's a fact. I'm even doing a small book report on
