Although this poem is dark it was enjoyable to read. The theme 'nobody
loses all the time' hits right on the mark, although uncle Sol has a rough
life, in the end he found something he could do very well.

It's amazing how e.e.cummings can combine a serious, borderline depressing
story with a unique concept and somewhat macabre humor and have the point
come across better for it.

the theme is right in the title/first line. . .nobody loses all the time!
his uncle sol was a huge failure in life, but in death he finally started a
successful farm -- with worms. it uses common cummings techniques like
contrasting dark humor and lightness, and irony. it's actually a bit more
straightforward and less open to interpretation than much of his work. :)

But, i'm having trouble finding a theme to this poem. Is there none? Is it

This is so funny--at my sleepaway camp, which happens to be a music camp in
Massachusetts, our choir director created a four-part piece to go along
with this poem. We first learned it in rhyme one week and then put our
music parts to it the second week in time for the final concert! It was so
much fun--this is a funny poem that now I have an attachment to.
