For any language in the world, poems and songs are often the finest examples of its literature. The manipulation of words, to express feelings, sceneries and situations are simply marvellous. The English language too has several notable poems and poets. All of which have brilliantly molded the language to convey everything from simple things like the beauty of a sunset, the vulnerability of being human to the epics of Rustum and Sohrab or the harsh realities of jilted love. But did you know, the shortest poem in English is simply Me, We.
Yes, just two words. And the best part it was written by someone who was not a poet of any sorts. In fact, the best thing he was known for is his fantastic skills in the boxing ring. He was three-time world heavy weight champion. Thats right, the shortest poem in English was written by Muhammed Ali, the boxing legend.
Muhammed Ali invented this during a Harvard seniors during a commencement ceremony when someone in the audience asked him to recite a poem. There are two accounts that state two versions of this poem. One that goes, Me, We and the other Me? Whee! Either way, it still is the shortest poem in the English language. And both versions are testaments to the fiery spirit that was Muhammed Ali.
