    In these days of social networking, Netflix, Hulu and YouTube, this poem, written over half a century ago, proved to be extremely prophetic. (Report)Reply

    I love Roald Dahl's books and his poems are just fabulous! I am quite familiar with most of them because they are in his books. (The Oompa Loompa's sing them in Charlie and the Chocolate factory.) I love Roald Dahl's books! (Report)Reply
