Dr W G Grace
Was an early cricketing ace.
Among his peers he was in top position –
Ask any statistician.

The American Civil War
Was on a scale not seen before.
The English version in Charles I's reign
Saw far fewer soldiers slain.

Bomber Harris said with relish:
"I'm going to make all Germans' lives hellish!"
That controversial fellow
Had clearly never heard of jus in bello.
