In Memory of Maggie

"In memory of Maggie
who in her time kicked:
Two colonels,
Four majors,
Ten captains,
Twenty-four lieutenants,
Forty-two sergeants,
Four hundred thirty-two
other ranks,
And one Mills bomb."

Epitaph for Maggie, an Army Mule in
France during World War 11.
From Sage remarks in "America's Horse."
