    I just love it, not quite suitable for children maybe but I would love to see it in a book with great illustrations. I think it would be a winner. (Report) Reply

    I am beginning to appreciate Roald Dahl's poems and humor. Poems are often serious and humorless and Roald Dahl's dark humor is much appreciated by me. (Report) Reply

    This is a horrible poem. Some of the rhymes are clever, but what a truly gory story indeed. (Report) Reply
