That is one of the most depressing poems ever, it's fantastic but really and extremly depressing. It makes you feel how lucky you are to have such good friends, I used to abuse the fact I had my friends now I know they're a godsend.

kaitie
everyone needs a friend to be able to talk to, throughout the good and the bad and when you're in need of that relief of mind and heart, you'll do whatever you can to find that someone that will listen, and not judge and that's true no matter who you are
Teresa
I really like this poem it totally touched my heart and your good with poetry!
tony
i was touched with your poem. it just drives home the point that every one of us needs a friend at some point in our lives.
hayley
I knew someone who felt this way and he was very special to me and he took his own life
sean
I appreciate this poem for its ability to reach people & touch them on several different levels. Rich in meaning, each reader is left to ponder & learn from the old man and his dummy. At first, I was touched wih sympathy for the old man in his loneliness, but as I read on, I began to feel sympathy for the puppet, whose friendship was elicited only by manipulation, or the "pulling of strings. " This could be a poem about a manipulative old man who sought to control others. Thus in the end was left with only a wooden "puppet" for a friend. Or, I could also see it this way, how many of our friends are like puppets? Wooden, hollow, phony, they'll tell you anything you want to hear to your face, but behind your back they stab you. And this could also be a poem about phony, wooden friends who give you the nod only when prodded to do so. We all have experienced jealous friends, as well, who withhold approval and always have a biting comment to make. In the end, I could see the old man AND his "puppet" friend as villains, depending on who was pulling the others "strings. " Taken at face value without interpretation, it's a great poem about our common plight of loneliness in a world of people caught up in the rush of life, and in our lonely, sometimes desperate lives, reach out like in the movie where the UPS guy's plane crashes into the ocean & he washes up on shore. with a UPS package containing a basketball, which he scribbles a smiley face on and befriends, naming the ball "Wilson. " Wilson or a puppet, or a puppy if needs be. is a friend indeed to a friend in need! Great poetry! Lots to think about with this one!
Thandi

This poem is sad but very touching at the same time.
levi
that was beautiful
caitie
I loved this poem. I was just looking around for one for a class project and this one jumped out at me. I think at one time or another we can all relate to the old man. Wanting a friend just to talk to and that will agree with us. =)

Ruth
This is a great poem. I really liked it. it flows great and it has a story to tell.
LINDA
This poem remined me when my dad was in hospital, there were so many men who didnt have friends or famil to visit. My mum and myself used to talk to the men who didnt have anyone to visit them. I think we take for granted our family and friends, they are very prescious and I now value them more
Los
This really touched my heart and I think many people should read it and it touch them too.

staci
Thats the best poem i every liked because i cant write poems that good i try but they dont work for me than they will not make sence to me so well thats good!
chayne
What a remarkable poem! I am looking forward to reading more of your work. I came to this site to looking for insight as to how to be a better friend, thx. My friendships with people tend to be strained and confusing; I begin to feel that i am wanted to compromise myself, that people only want me to agree with them; me thoughts perhaps there was soemthing i was missing when it come to friendship. I still have a lot to learn, but now i will take more pride in my tendency to disagree. My vote is an 11.
Carla
This is so impressive. It is really deep. I can relate this poem to some people I know but I would like to share this poem with a couple of my friends and from now on if i see anyone seeming lonely i will walk up and introduce my self i could prevent some teenage suicide thanx for the great advice in your poem.
stacey
I love this poem because it's true. People don't have someone that they can rely on and really want a friend they can talk to like the guy mentioned in this poem. I think that this poem is heartwarming and makes people really think.
Jennifer
Wonderful!
dichelle
this poem was very good and i liked it cause i could make connection with it in many ways. you should write more poems i will be looking for them around the web. i guess i would find this on poems about friends. sometimes my friends be acting dumb and it be getting on my nerves and when they do i can remember this poem i might print it out and read to them or try to remember it by heart.
Vera
your poem was so true and it really touched my heart ur so sweet and yeah wot can i say ur one of a kind
Joshua
It was good.
aaron
I have never had a poem make me tear up, but as I started to read it sounded like a pore me poem, but I read, the life of the man wakes you up, please keep writing.
Vernon
The poem is profound and has touched me. because I've encountered so many different type of "Friends" in my life. Friends who have proven themselves to not being friends at all, friends who take friendship for granted, and the few who know what it means to be a friend. those who've always been there by my side like the dummy in the poem.
saloni
well the poem is really good and touchy. and it indeed taught us the meaning of lonliness as well as the importance of friends and friendship in life! cheers!
njfinzi
This poem is both sad and true and it reminds me of the poor suffering people that i admire. this old mans hell of a life has made me relise how strong and independent i could be oneday when i'm old and may not have any friends P. S this was written by a year 8 student
Ali A. G
Infact,it is the first time I feel I am forced to comment, even my English isn's perfect,but all what I want to say; " What an excllent poem it is!" I felt as if I were in that sad situation. I hope I can write as you can. sooooo much thanks you both;the dummy and you,Michael Mack
Margaret S
This poem really meant something to me, as in my teens I probably behaved like the old man, blaming others because my dreams had not been fulfilled. Now a contented 60 something, I still see people of my own age behaving in the same way. What a waste! Claire Messud, the brilliant novelist, has written a wonderful short novel "The Hunters" about the same thing. I just wish I could have read "The Dummy" and the novel when I was a teenager!
Julia
I like the cuteness and also the tragedy of the poem. Sometimes a person's only friend is not a real friend at all. I shared this with a friend of mine. It's very touching.
simon
It was just BEAUTIFUL. I LOVED IT!
Rhiannon
i love this poem because its pretty funny
Chloe
I really enjoyed this poem. I felt like I was that!
Rebecca
good one and heart touching. keep gud n keep writing
Piet
The twist at the end is stunning!
Kasey
The dummy. It was a good poem, at my school in Missouri, Their is this girl she is in 7th grade and everyone makes fun of her and they dont like her because they Think that she is nasty, And all i got to say is that they need to leave her alone. I was like if it was you , i dont think you would like poeple making fun of you because your are not smart like they kids in your class. I myself thinks it just mean to make fun of someone that is not as smart and goodlooking as your are. I dont think you have to make fun of them. Ihink it is very cool of you to make this poem.
paige
this is a very nice poem
patricia
This is one of the most awsome poems i have read in a very long time it touched me deep in my soul i could feel God speaking to me through it! Thank you so much and keep up letting Gods words flow onto the paper! God Bless - Patricia
Debbie
I liked this poem, although quite sad, but didn't understand the end too much. The dummy I thought was the puppet, but when reading the end, was it the old man? But I really did like it and read it over and over.
kirsty
i luv it
Morgan
I thought this was a beautiful poem. It makes u think bout what a friends really is, and how much they love u, and will stay at ur side till death or more! LOVE THIS POEM!
s
That is the most sweetest poem i ever heard
Gregory
Remember, the little things in our lives are just as important as the big ones: To me this poem reminds us of that fact.
shelley
i just loved It! this poem is just so touching-- the fact that the elderly man has only one friend - a wooden dummy.
Sara
I love this poem website!
Amanda
I thought that this poem was just great. It was a little depressing, but I really enjoyed the concept, and found it so stimulating and thought-provoking! I especially loved the final line. Well done!
dervla
THAT WAS ABSOLUTLY FANTASIC! WELL DONE!
Ryan
This poem was excellent. It really put friendship into prospective
Bethanie
I started loving this poem before i even finished it. I like it a lot because it has a fun story and it's simple enough for all ages and people can actually relate to it.
shanalie
This poem is so amazing. It was sad that he only had one friend, but it was good that they died together.
Sandy
This poem really spoke to me and reminded me not to become cynical and bitter about life's challenges and obstacles!
Christina
i think this poem is really great and it kinda shows that the only true friend you could have is yourself or a dummy
samantha
hey that was a great poem, it really touched me deep down inside. keep writting.
dervla
that was a beautiful poem you have a lot of talent i was really touched x
tani
this poem is very touching. we have write about our favorite poets in english and make a presentation. i am certainly going tell this poem to my teacher. friendship is so important. isn't it???? when your friends are angry with u, u just can't stop thinking about them. i love my friend but i dont know why she is acting so strangely these days. i hope that after reading this poem, she will be ok. excellent piece of work!
Sara
this poem totally rocked my socks and it was osm and it touched my fragile little heart!
Kendra
I really liked this peom and how it wa written. I liked the fact that even though he never found a friend he made his own friend out of wood. It shows that not everyone needs a human to have as a friend.
selena
I thought it was a very good poem!
Nada
to: Micael Mack this is a great poem, it really made me think, its so true in every sense that everyone needs a friend to sit and listen to our complaints and from to time at least nod. :) you should be Congratulated, nice ryhmes Mack
polly
Such a wonderful piece of poetry! I love Michael Mack's poetry!

Jack
it was soo sad. it tuched my heart so much. i think that you should write more poems like this.
nicole
touching
michelle
These are the emotions rumbling in me at this moment in my life. Thank you!
Tia
OMG this poem is great I loved the repetitious "nodded and agreed," it makes me sympothise with the protagonist, and feel sorry for him at the same time. somtimes rebels and outcasts only need someone to relay thier feelings and emotions to. they wouldn't be so off kilter and unsocial if they were given a chance. calling the old man the dummy in the end shows the worlds cruel opinion on such things. wow i really liked this or i wouldn't have written so much! you're awesome!
jakeya
This poem was very good!
penny
you did a good job on this poem big ups!
nancy

chuck
Sad but uplifting at the same time. What a poetic treat.
W.
A very beautiful, yet sad poem. Unfortunitely, it speaks alot of truth as this is the way some people feel.
Deborah
This poem The Dummy . Wow what can I say. I thought this poem was great. It was well written. Great work. This poem really touch me.
amanda
I really liked this poem because it describes how the guy was feeling and the dummy understood just like a real friend he was there to listen! Everyone needs a friend, to talk to to laugh with and cry even if they cant tell the jokes, or the sad storry its always nice to have someone there to listen to your every thought, dream and wish and thats what a friend is and thats what this poem mad me think! They were friends and died side by side whats better then a friend who stands beside you even threw death!
Maggie
This is a beatiful poem
mariko
this poem is very touching, i felt really sad when i read thru this poem. i think its worth reading anytime! mariko
JA.
Your poem was sooo great. i cant think of what to say. This is the first time i post a comment for anybody because your's was perfect! I LOVE IT ! But the title was not quite suitable 4 the poem. from my point of view. thats all. continue to write poems,im looking foward 4 ur next one.
Mariellen
I won't give my life history although it explains the reason, Michael Mack, for the profound impact your poem "The Dummy" had upon me. It's as though God used "The Dummy" to shake all that is within me. With hope that what remains cannot be shaken. And now? This has become my hope too. May God be my collector of fragil things. Mariellen
jinkin
it is good
vidual

mandy
this poem was great and it touched me deeply and it had an effect on me.
Maria
This is a really good poem, and it has a great message
Perla
This poem really touched the part of me that once felt lonely and friendless. It reminded me of how people simply need someone to keep them company and listen to them in their hour of need. Anyone who will take the time to be kind.
michelle
Wow, that is a genius poem! It reminded me of pinochio. You should write a poem book. Good luck if you do!
ravin
I thought this was a very good poem. A lot of people can relate it whether it being a book or a diary that they can call a friend.
Tabitha
I think the poem "The Dummy" was really good. It had inspiration, intellegance, and a twist at the end. Its also nice that the man found a friend after all.
Laura
This poem touches the soul and heart! Please take a moment to read this masterpiece and it will make you realize the importance of friendship!
kira

Wonderful poem of how solitude can turn into seperatism gone solo. This touched a raw nerve of how this can happen to anyone but most often to the elderly.
Sara
This poem was so moving. This is truely a work of talent. It has to be one of the best poems I have ever had the privilege of reading.
den
i love this poem,it hit me.
Yvonne
This is an outstanding poem. Sad in many respect yet truely a remarkable look at what we all wish we had, a friend that always agrees and yet the poem shows us to be careful what we wish for.
dominique

Fireblade
The poem is superb with high on emotions. a genuis' masterpiece. keep up the great work.
Lou
I was touched by the poem "The Dummy"
jessie
this poem has irony i love how in the end it was the old man that turned out to be the dummy instead of the puppet. for he truly was because a real friend you cant control, they're free to be themselves and they wouldn't lie to you. even in agreement. wonderful!
Shaina
I like this poem a lot because i just last 2 of my good friends but one was a Fake but reading this poem made me remember i have more friends. that is why i like this poem.

It just happened to hit a chord, reflecting the melancholy brought on by the fear of sharing oneself with people.

Noora
100 stars
jess
it was really awseome, it really expressed so much felling and emoyion. and caputured the picture of what was happenening so well.
jessica
this was a good poem. i liked how the man finally got a friend. but the last sentance, "the dummy and his wooden friend" mad me think. i didn't notice that the first time i read it. this means that the man became the dummy, because of the wooden dummy. it's kind of cool how when you look at something a second time, it's different than the first.
vasantha
beautiful poem. It touched my heart. in this day and age when true friends are so hard to find, it struck a chord.
Elise
GREAT!
Jessica
This poem has really touched me and it's really sad. The poem is really incredible.
didi
this is so touching! you can see all the thoughts behind a person who is lonely, and you wouldnt want to feel like that either, so quickly, find a really good mate!
UNKNOWN
I DO BELIEV THAT THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD POEM. IT REMINDED ME ON PINOCHO- - HE WAS WOODEN ALSO, JUST LIKE THE DUMY.
ANN
This a beautiful poem, I love it. It reminds me of my special friend, because he has always been there for me,just like the wooden puppet in poem, and I love him for that. Again, a very lovely poem indeed.
Stephan
I love this poem. it expresses how I feel. i have turned to a computer for online dating and signing up for friendship clubs but i have never found a friend. prehaps its because i have an eye in my fore head or maybe because i stink of stilton cheese. But i think the real reason is i am in love with my sisters husband.
Jonathan
THAT IS THE BEST POEM I HAVE EVER HEARD.
Amy
This was an awesome poem. It made perfect sense and the ryhming was amazing! I absolutely loved it!

Sha Sha
I think this poem is avery great one. It's about life and finding happiness in friends. It's also sad because the man had to make his own friend out of string and wood. So everybody needs to traet peole with the same level of friendship as they would like.
Louise
This was a really good poem - probably the best so far that i've read. It really was amazing, the way Michael Mack wrote it. Marvellous job. I'm looking forward to reading many more of his poems.

Michael, you're an insiration. I'm lost in a mass of gloom. Maybe poetry can drag me out.
Anna
Wow that was a great poem. I almost cried. I guess when you are surrounded by friends you don't realize how much you find comfort in them. I loved the way the poem rimed but still had meaning and the rythem was really awesome. I can't wait to show my friends that story! I vote it very high!
Christianna

Sther
this is a very beautiful and inspiring peom keep writing these beautiful peoms.
Ashutosh
A touching poem which is equally true of our times when one person "does not have the time" or the inclination to help other people who are actually not in need of help but pure, unblemished love. Their only wish . to belong ! Do keep on posting such poems. Goodluck !
Brandi
I love this poem good job
tranell
I absolutly,positivly love and enjoyed reading this poem. i mean. i hust wish how i could put it in words,how much i enjoyed it, but i can't. while reading the poem i thought the litle puppet the man created was the dummy, but when i finished reading it, i realized the man was the dummy for blaming everyone, but himself for his problems. i can DEFINETLY see you as a poet in the near future, and i wish you the best of luck, and pray you suceed. bye!
Jose
Yo i loved this poem it had a sense of loneliness and reasurriness that sometimes people need you know

Tina
This touched my heart to the deepest depths,,,too often people are forgotten,,they get old,,and society thinks they are of no use no more. its lonely when you are old and have no friends,,everybody needs friends,,so the next time you see a old person,,young ,,or whatever sto and say hi to them you just dont know how happy you will make the person feel. this is a great poem,,ty for the author who wrote it.
Jennifer

This is a very good poem. I loved it!
Lizzi
This poem touched me because it is so much like real life. Oftentimes, we make a friend, we hope to be accepted by them and be able to talk about anything. We are friends for a while, maybe even a long time, and then something happens. it could be anything, usually a silly reason that this argument breaks out, and then two people are in the miserable dark without a friend. This has happened to me so often that i truly wish that i wont have any more friends. If any person ever has any friend problems, i hope you come out of it okay. Just know that everybody has problems, all that you can do is forgive and forget what happened. Also, you should love your enemies as you should love anyone, EVERYONE needs someone to love them and care about them.
Kipar
this poem is awesome. as i was sitting in the COM library,i couldn't think of a good topic. so i searched google and read this poem. after reading this poem, i was fascinated by this poem and thought it would be best for me to talk about friendship. thank you very much. oh yeah, i was really touched by this poem because it reminds of the many heartaches that i've done to my friends. makes me want to walk up to them and apologize. ey poet, you're the man.

This poem really tells a lot about friendship. Sometimes we only have one friend but he/she is our dummy. So invest in the friendships you have. It is never a wasted time!
Samantha
This is a great poem keep up the good job
Kayla
I raed the poem the Dummy. I just want to say wow that touched me. what is really bad is that some people do go through out thier lifes and never do find that one true friend, or they have a true friend but like this man in the poem never realizes it. that's what's sad. anyways i liked it and i think the author did a great job. keep up the good work.
clarissa

Brittany
I used to be this way. I once had no friends and I know how it feels. I made a friend inside of myself who was like the mans dummy. I thought that tha poem was very touching. I wish i could talk to the person who made that poem and how good of a job he did on it. *~Brittany~*
rekha
I simply love the poem for what it is! It makes me dumbfound and awestruck about the whole meaning of friendship that is has bought out so beautifully in this poem! Its simply so superb and so very TRUE!
Rachel
I thought this was an amazing poem. I went to a few other websites to find a friendship poem that truely moved me. They were all lacking. However this poem drew me in from the first line. Thank you for putting your thoughts on paper and allowing us to enjoy it.

bristle
I write poems I think you have some real talent
jacqueline
Excellent, This made me laugh so much. It is the first time I have voted for anything and just had to let you know. We have a fun game in our family with two teams I lead the buddies and My dad leads the Dummies. We look for material for fun for meetings and birthdays etc. My dad being a carpenter certainly fashions things out of wood and is now making his own dummy. You have given us such fun. My dad is getting on and is wrinkled, he was lonely and so moved to be near me and so began the game, it has brought lonely people together fun but under a real message. Thanks
julie
this poem was so sad it reminded me of my friend vthat died of lonliness cause i moved and she died
thulasi
good and heart touching
Sydney
All the voters only commented about friendship and loneliness. But I am freaked out by the last sentence-- "The dummy and his wooden friend" The man became The Dummy, instead of the little puppet he made, by indulging in self-agreement. This is scary, like, he turned crazy because of that. I also can see how you look at the world, at least from at the time you wrote that poem. This a poem that's . I don't know, sounds spooky in a way, hollow-ish.
victoria
Oh My Gosh! it was great i loved how it connected with the readers it was just so fantastic i think Micheal Mack should write more and make poetry books about anything!Once again it was Great!
chris
wow! i was looking for inspiration to write a song and seriously was touched by this. its strange how i started trying to find one about having a close friend and found this one thats so different to what i expected. thank you for this.
mallory

Takiyrah
this i s a Great! poem u have 2 really listen to the words well u read and u will truly understand.
Bo Bo
I thought this poem was awsome. Even though it was sad it still had a purpose and it was right. it really touched me because there are some people in the world that dont have friends and instead of trying to meet new people that just make puppets or invisble friends. I think those people are dummies just like the man in the poem. Michael Mack did a very good job with this poem!
sammie
i 4t the poem was extreamly good 10/10
manoj
gr8 piece of thoughts. I loved it
Subhash
Wow, this is an amazing poem. It actually opened my eyes as to how most of us expect our friends to be puppet with strings in our hands. And only when a friend dance to our tune we feel so relaxed and happy. the other side is we can also play a puppet willingly to a friend whose happiness matters to us the most.
Stormy
OUTSTANDING! I have been brought to tears by this poem. Thank You For Sharing Stormy
Holly
I REALLY ENJOYED THIS POEM, I THINK IT HAS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST POEMS I HAVE EVER READ, YOU PUT A LOT OF PERSPECTIVE INTO THINGS FOR ME. I NOW REALIZE THAT NOW MATTER WHO IT IS WETHER IT IS THE SILENT PERSON WHO IS NOT VERY FRIENDLY, OR THE JOCK/CHEERLEADER WHO THINKS THEY ARE THE MOST AWESOME THING TO HIT EARTH: EVERYONE HAS FEELINGS AND EVERYONE NEEDS SOMEONE TO LOVE AND BE LOVED BY!THANKS A TON!
Jordan
I felt like crying because this is how I feel. This poem touched me.
amber
I really liked the poem, because it reminds me of a friend i know have. when we were smaller,me and her didnt get along so we never talked. then one day we sat down and started talking,& ever since then weve been best friends through good and bad!
art
I always was facinated with the symbolism of the puppet. I write also at times and have used this as a theme also very cool!
Sheldon
It's amazing how pathetic you can make the entire human race seem in just two hundred and forty-two words.

Natalie
This poem really touched my heart! And trust me not to many things touch my heart! Micheal Mack your a great poet so keep up the great poems! Maybe someday you could become a poet! No wait you already are! You are at least to me!
Gina
I love this poem a lot because I'm a person who is different and I don't have a true friend to share my secrets and feelings with. I hope you keep writting more poems because even if you don't know it, it does mean alot to that person who is lonely.
Twhiler Anne
This poem can make one shed tears; it so accurately depicts the hopeless, friendless, life that some people live. Sometimes, I feel like the old man, who is, in fact, the real DUMMY. You say it so well.
Lynda
I appreciate this poem for its ability to reach people & touch them on several different levels. Rich in meaning, each reader is left to ponder & learn from the old man and his dummy. At first, I was touched wih sympathy for the old man in his loneliness, but as I read on, I began to feel sympathy for the puppet, whose friendship was elicited only by manipulation, or the "pulling of strings. " This could be a poem about a manipulative old man who sought to control others. Thus in the end was left with only a wooden "puppet" for a friend. Or, I could also see it this way, how many of our friends are like puppets? Wooden, hollow, phony, they'll tell you anything you want to hear to your face, but behind your back they stab you. And this could also be a poem about phony, wooden friends who give you the nod only when prodded to do so. We all have experienced jealous friends, as well, who withhold approval and always have a biting comment to make. In the end, I could see the old man AND his "puppet" friend as villains, depending on who was pulling the others "strings. " Taken at face value without interpretation, it's a great poem about our common plight of loneliness in a world of people caught up in the rush of life, and in our lonely, sometimes desperate lives, reach out like in the movie where the UPS guy's plane crashes into the ocean & he washes up on shore. with a UPS package containing a basketball, which he scribbles a smiley face on and befriends, naming the ball "Wilson. " Wilson or a puppet, or a puppy if needs be. is a friend indeed to a friend in need! Great poetry! Lots to think about with this one!
