Poem by Arthur Conan Doyle


Songs of Action (1898). 22. The Irish Colonel


Said the king to the colonel,
                    "The complaints are eternal,
That you Irish give more trouble
                    Than any other corps."

Said the colonel to the king,
                    "This complaint is no new thing,
For your foemen, sire, have made it
                    A hundred times before." 

1898
