I love the way Mr.Sandburg describes Chicago as the people's town. It may
not be perfect, but it's hard working, and it's real. I love it, I love
everything about this poem. It's hearty, like meat and potatoes and it
really speaks to anyone who's fought for a place to call home.

Carl Sandburg defends the city that most inspored him. He only lived there
for the last half of his life. He lived in Galesburg for over 20 years
before he went to Chicago to live.

Even though Carl Sandburg is talking about Chicago and he did live there.
It was not this home town. Just thought I might state that.

Ammmmm...this poem is really inspiring because it shows nationalism, since
in this poem Mr. Carl is defending his own country the Chicago although he
knew that its really in a bad condition. that's all and i love you!!!!!

it is my educated opinion that mr carl is defending his home city of
chicago. this city is gettin a bad rap for crime and free sex. though this
is true and carl knows it, he stands by chiacgo claiming that all cities
have their problems like they do, and they're getting through it together.
