i think it's quite humorous to see that so many people waste their lives
commenting on what they think this poem means. i mean...my dick is longer
than this poem. he probably wiped his ass and described what the shit on
the toilet paper looked like. there is no deeper meaning. if anything, this
guy had Tourettes and randomly shouted out these words. they don't mean
anything. poo poo on you :P

Sorry, d, but Carlos can not possibly be using the word chickens without
inferring that they are the cowards.

i somewhat agree with janen. i think the red wheelbarrow symbolizes the
everyday little things that we take for granted. the white chickens is just
to juxtapose and create an image in our heads. in that way, we already
begin to notice the wheelbarrow more, as the colours contrast and red
stands out. plus, the enjambment of wheel barrow makes one realize[it has
wheels, and is shaped like a barrow].

I believe that this poem is about the white and the other races subject,
that the whites are chickens and that because they are white, they do not
depend on the red wheelbarrow's rain because they are white and in that
idea, more dominant to themselves because they have more things, etc. The
rest of the races depend on the red wheelbarrow because of what it gives
them that they cannot get from a fresher source because of their race and
racism. The red wheelbarrow is not fresh but it is the only other thing
that allows the other races to survive which shows that they have hard
lives where the whites don't because of their race.

i think the red wheelbarrow is a poetry which signifies every simple things
in life that sometimes we try to ignore although it may be so helpful in a
lot of times.

I'm not sure what's more amusing-
the people who don't like this poem
or the people that do. If you want to
know why I say that read The Red Wheelbarrow-
