I tried to post this before, but it seemingly didn't take, so I'll try again.

I have often heard that the shortest poem is:
Fleas

Adam
Had 'em.

I suggest that my poem "Ego" is shorter:

Ego

See
me.

Ross, First 'C' is not a word it is a consonant. I think a shorter poem for 'Ego' would be...

I

after all isn't that what ego is all about? No applause, please. Throw money, paper preferably...lol. I will take checks or money orders... sorry no debit or credit cards.

Ohsteve:

You are, of course, correct about using "c" as a word; I have changed it to "see". Your poem would fit the title, but, alas, has no rhyme. And actually, in thinking through your comment I have come up with an even shorter poem entitled:

My Secret for Success

I
try.


The Pilot

I
fly.


I do think I havan old Mexican peso note here some place; will that do?

Thanks for the interest and the read.

Couldn't resist.
