In a far away tiny land, I forgot its name

there was this story of a girl and a boy

so terribly poor that it was a shame

for they never got single little toy.


They would use anything to improvise

with rich imagination only kids possess

so let following serve as a little surprise

what was their game you wouldn't guess.


And neither could that man passing by

seeing line of sheep crap on the ground

lined up from smallest to big and now dry

on a nearby meadow so plenty to be found.


So he asked the kids what was the game

they just shrugged with faces being blank

saying how they had not given it a name

but those were soldiers lined by the rank.


Now all curious and amused was the man

amazed as they knew all from corporal up

reciting them excitedly like only kids can

from smallest to biggest piece of the crap.


Only the highest rank was not there

Commander in Chief slipped their mind

but they said they had looked everywhere

but such a big piece of crap they couldn't find.
