THE IDEAL GENERAL, by            
First Line: Not for me the general renowned nor the well-groomed dandy
Last Line: Provided he's firm on his feet and is valiant in heart.
Alternate Author Name(s): Archilochos
Subject(s): Generals


NOT for me the general renowned nor the well-groomed dandy,
Nor he who is proud of his curls or is shaven in part;
But give me a man that is small and whose legs are bandy,
Provided he's firm on his feet and is valiant in heart.
