A Light in the Attic

Silverstein, Shel

A Light in the Attic 

Genre: poetry, humor

Last night while I lay thinking here
Some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
And pranced and partied all night long
And sang their same old Whatif song:

Whatif I flunk that test?
Whatif green hair grows on my chest?
Whatif nobody likes me?
Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?...

Here in the attic of Shel Silverstein you will find "Backward Bill", "Sour Face Ann", "The Meehoo with an Exactlywatt", and the "Polar Bear in the Frigidaire". You will talk with "Broiled Face", and find out what happens when "Somebody Steals Your Knees", "You Get Caught by the Quick-Digesting Gink", "A Mountain Snores", and "They Put a Brassiere on the Camel."
