There was also a Mad book "For Better or Verse" that may have had it.

I'm pretty sure it first appeared do earlier than the 1957-58 school 
year, because my 7th grade teacher Bertha Mueller (we called her 
"Bert" behind her back) made us memorize "The Daffodils." We also 
memorized Masefield's "Sea-Fever," which was parodied thus:

I must go down to the city dump,
To the lonely dump and the sky,
And all I ask is a garbage truck
And a start to steer her by.
