Well, I cannot answer your question but if memory serves, I read that after
Twain met Kipling, who had sought out Twain and visited him in his home,
Twain remarked that that man talked too much. Meaning, for once Twain did
not get to talk "too much."

  Now....we are back on the right track for this forum....

Anyway, I'm looking for information on the 1913 Rupyard Kipling poem, =
"The Spies March." Its text is all over the web, but nothing I can see =
regarding its compositional history or any analysis. Any folks here =
overlap into Brit Lit and this little ditty?
