Smart - Poem by Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more then one!
And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes-- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!
Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!
And I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!
And I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head--
Too proud of me to speak!

Smart Poems

  1. The Wind Blew Shrill And Smart

    THE wind blew shrill and smart, And the wind awoke my heart Again to go a-sailing o'er the sea, To hear the cordage moan And the straining timbers groan, And to see the flying pennon lie a-lee. O sailor of the fleet, It is time to stir the feet! It's time to man the dingy and to row! It's lay your hand in mine And it's empty down the wine, And it's drain a health to death before we go! To death, my lads, we sail; And it's death that blows the gale And death that holds the tiller as we ride. For he's the king of all In the tempest and the squall, And the ruler of the Ocean wild and wide!

  2. Smart Apes

    The trees are leaving; lurched away; heading magnetic north; sap cooled and cold. The elms, uproot themselves; and go. Shade is gone. The house is warm less; night prolonged. I see birds laboring west unclear and direction-less. Nature's abandonment is profound. I see no humming bird at the outside feeder now for weeks. A tragedy. Sorrow is a hoof-less stag, the stunted bud on the flowerless tree, the wind that weeps. The bad air is Grey Green 'Beware of Smart Apes wielding intelligence uncontrolled.' Hope is the mutantcy which may overcome Smart Ape Tendencies- how likely how unlikely much depends upon the answer to the query.

  3. It Is Hard Being Smart

    i must hide it) lost in it(s mind.. and try not to offend those.. whom are so much... more smarter.. and so very deep..as I sleep... and running..off.. forever lost.... back into the deepest part of the woods.. and this her forest..she shows me.. and she is pleased...that I trust her.. and I am only happy that she is happy.... and walking around her forest...I find her.. home where she lives...and knocking.... she opens her door too him....and she.. recognizing his genius.... and being now his woods.....then.. looks down at his mismatched socks... and knowing thus as she does.. she slips him in to hers... and like a glove it's.. universe...spiraling out word.... becomes a little bit milky.. because of it.. and I thank you....whom ever you are.

  4. Smart Phones And Flashy Cars; I'm Not In The Rat Race

    (I edited my title a bit now) Having lived in quite a few countries I've seen many smart cars Fashionable fast cars My favorite from afar is that luxurious car they know as limousine Not for the purchasing rather simply for mere gazing B.M.W was more popular when I was very young but even smart cars can't take you to places too far flung Maybe the latest car craze is the snazzy sedan or is it the high class Bugatti? Or with an upper-class feel it's the glamorous Ferrari. And the Land Cruiser, the Land Rover for a spectacular safari! The nouveau rich was fast to buy a Mercedez Benz Ostentation inevitably follows most items of luxury Yet smart classy cars never really fascinate me I don't feel any low-brow riding a cab or a taxi. Never once have I craved for show-off items of luxury You can be great and be admired even if like mahatma Gandhi in a dhoti. Whether on foot or in a cab, I'm looked upon as an aristocrat Never have I dreamt of becoming a magnate or a fat cat! Many poets seem to eschew the rat race I feel. Sporty sports car auction? Oh no, I'd rather slip off to the library Since show-off wealth could never ever catch my fancy Then comes the newest craze the latest craze for smart phones the newest models of mobile phones The stylish blackberry cellphone Touchscreens, the I-Pod, the I-Pad And I-phones gosh IT- mad! Bah all that gadget fad! And yet my old fashioned Nokia doesn't ever really bother me coz I'd rather save for info study material than on a costly phone waste my man's money. So I simply don't feel low or any less high-brow if I don't buy the latest costliest stuff you know I never liked changing the old for the new unless the things stopped working and were useless too. So let the big buck tycoons monopolise each and every bonanza and let there be nothing else on their mind except ostentatious extravaganza Poets like me can be content inking on nature's wonders in all luxury and protect instead our priceless oeuvre from the plagiarist's robbery If you are into scholarly pursuits, you haven't time for any snobbery!
