Here is another fun poem by Shel Silverstien, which expresses the importance of practicing effective communication and sending clear messages to others!

Everything On It

I asked for a hot dog

With everything on it,

And that was my big mistake,

‘Cause it came with a parrot,

A bee in a bonnet,

A wristwatch, a wrench, and a rake.

It came with a goldfish,

A flag, and a fiddle,

A frog, and a front porch swing,

And a mouse in a mask –

That’s the last time I ask

For a hot dog with everything.
