Little details sometimes matter

by Radio Somewhere

A verse I remember from childhood:

For want of a nail, the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe, the horse was lost.
For want of a horse, the soldier was lost.
For want of a soldier, the battle was lost.
For want of a battle, the war was lost.
For want of a war, the kingdom was lost.
All for the want of a horseshoe nail.
