Now, Zachary Zugg took out the rug And Jennifer Joy helped shake it Then Jennifer Joy, she made a toy And Zachary Zugg helped break it And some kind of help is the kind of help That helping's all about And some kind of help is the kind of help We all can do without
(From Shel Silverstein's Helping)
When I was little, we had a record with this poem set to music. I think I need to find it for my
daughter. In the last two days, she has cleaned my windows with Spray and Wash, wiped my
laundry room floor with Windex, and filled the fabric softener dispenser with detergent. "But I
was just trying to help..." I know, dear, I know.
