AUTHOR:Walter Crawford Kelly (1913–73)

  This succinct expression was derived from a sentence in the Foreword of an earlier publication, The Pogo Papers (1953): Resolve then, that on this very ground, with small flags waving and tinny blasts on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us.
