OK…. can’t resist….(I may have posted this long ago on this site… if so, sorry…)
Several sites attest to the actor Cary Grant calling this his favorite poem….
Still could be apocryphal… funny anyhow.
"They bought me a box of tin soldiers,
I threw all the Generals away,
I smashed up the Sergeants and Majors,
Now I play with my Privates all day."
