Cary Grant poetry

In the actor’s biography Evenings with Cary Grant: Recollections in His Own Words and by Those Who Knew Him Best, Grant’s friend Bea Shaw told author Nancy Nelson, “Cary and Prince Ranier would call one another and tell dirty jokes. Some of Cary’s jokes were really raunchy.” Gregory Peck further confirmed, “Cary told the funniest stories, with southern accents, ethnic accents—any kind of accent. Dirty ones, too. You’d never think those things would come out of him.”
As for an example, here is a poem, that according to the memoir, was a Cary Grant favorite:

“They bought me a box of tin soldiers. / I threw all the Generals away. / I smashed up the Sergents and Majors. / Now I play with my Privates all day."

REVIEW: Janice L. Loper 5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional. Truthful. Intensely absorbing. Eloquent. November 29, 2018 Format: Kindle Edition You get such an emotional response from each page. Your mind shouts, “Yes, This is truth.” As you read. Some passages leave you bleeding and stunned. Others have you shaking your head. These collections and musings are quite stirring. The truth can be quite ugly.
