Poem of the Day: "Messy Room" by Shel Silverstein

"Messy Room" by Shel Silverstein is the Songs of Eretz Poem of the Day for May 23, 2014.  A link to the poem may be found here:  Mr. Silverstein's poetry has been reviewed previously in Songs of Eretz.  A link to that review, including biographical information about the poet, may be found here:

"Messy Room" begins with a single-line opening chorus, followed by an eleven-line lighthearted ballad, followed by a repetition of the chorus.  The poem ends with a three-line surprise tag.

My bedroom, study, and office are always pretty squared away--eight years in dormitories and five years in the military made sure of that--but I was reminded of my son the artist's bedroom.  I mean, the description was uncannily accurate!
