Falling UpThis poem (and illustration ) are by the great Shel Silverstein
and can be found in his book FALLING UP
Millie McDeevit screamed a scream
So loud is made her eyebrows steam.
She screamed so loud her jawbone broke,
Her tongue caught fire, her nostrils smoked.
Her eyeballs boiled and then popped out,
Her ears flew north, her nose went south,
Her teeth flew out, her voice was wrecked,
Her head went sailing off her neck -
Over the hillside, 'cross the sream,
Into the skies it chased the scream.
And that's what happened to Millie McDeevit.
(At least I hope all you screamers believe it).
