ME WE - Mohammed Ali

Back in the day, the boxer Mohammed Ali stood before a room of Harvard College graduates and said 2 words... Me, We... These words were later recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records and the shortest known poem. The meaning of this poem has been debated by debated by various philosophers. Was Ali presenting an ode to himself with the deceleration 'Me, Whee'? Or did he just place 2 words together that sound alike? To me, 'Me We' is a proclamation of unity, the power of one is only equal to the sum of all. 1mx1x mixed media on canvas
