It is one of the hard poems to memorize. It's hard because it keeps saying
yes, exactly what, and me who.

The book this poem is in, A Light in the Attic, has wonderful
illustrations, also by Silverstein. Those who find the poem confusing need
to get hold of the book and look at the picture of the MeeHoo with her

This is the best poem. I know, I know all of Shel's poems are just great
but this poem takes the cake.
