Than some repulsive little bum

    I love Roald Dahl with every beat of my heart
    I try as much to write as rich as that (Report) Reply

    I think it's plain, I think it's clear
    What is meant, by this poem here.
    It is not crime, that Dahl did hate
    But all those things, which begin to grate.
    No, not muggers, nor robbers nor thieves,
    But all those irritating little pet peeves.
    From people sitting picking noses
    To tangled up garden hoses.
    Grinding teeth, and snapping jaws
    And all unpleasant character flaws.
    Whether you agree or no
    It's near time for me to go.
    But before I do depart
    I've one last thing to impart
    Dear friends, we surely all agree
    There is no poet quite like he. (Report) Reply

    In this poem i think he relates chewing gum to other crimes. I don't think anyone would hate chewing gum that much and he was sending a message about those who do crime are bound to have a sticky end. He might just really hate gum though! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
