The poem A Smile wasn't written by Spike Milligan. It was written by a children's poet call Jez Alborough and published in a collection in 1991 http: //jezalborough.com/club/? q=4-a-smile-from-a-stranger
This poem was not written by this poet. I know because I wrote it in 2004. I don't see it in his poetry list. I call it " Infectious Smiles" . (Posted by " Good Thinking" on May 3rd,2019, under Spike Milligan's name.)
