    Roald Dahl is more of an author, not really a poet. i adore him and his books!
    i have read james and the giant peach, the adventures of charlie and mr willy wonka, george's marvellous medicine, the witches and all of his books.(i too lazy to write them down.)
    and i finished these when i was 8 years old! now i'm ten, going to 11 on 29 oct 07

    Smart pig. Interesting conflict between the 'meaning of life' and 'survival of the fittest.' Well done!

    I know this off by heart. Why are their so few of Roald Dahls poems here?

    I think it's great that Roald Dahl was a poet and author. Most authors are just authors, and most poets are just poets. I loved this poem. It's funny and it rhymes!
