: : you took me from my nice warm cot and put me on that cold cold pot
: "...and made me pee if I could or not." That's from "Ode to My Mother." What was the question?
I found a very similar poem from 1917 about "The Major" which starts:
Who wakes me from my nice warm cot,
Whether I want to get up or not,
And says if I stay there I'll catch it hot?
One's probably a parody of the other, but I don't know which is which.
