In the Ambulance (Wilfred Wilson Gibson) "Two rows of cabbages, Two of curly greens, Two rows of early peas, Two of kidney beans." That's what he is muttering, Making such a song, Keeping other chaps awake The whole night long. Both his legs were shot away, And his head is light; So he keeps muttering All the blessed night - "Two rows of cabbages Two of curly greens, Two rows of early peas, Two of kidney beans." WW1 era poem XX July01
