Potatoes Potatoes by Austin T (NJ) As I was thrown into the heart of battle, I never ate any potatoes;When I found a farmers field, I ate more spuds than a spud spuckling sparrow,The grays rushed in my field;We shot them in their tracks,No taters for them, More for me;And my men of the 92nd Infantry.
