A Poem, "A Gunners Reply;"

A rebel sniper in a tree, up and took a shot at me.  I heard the ball go hissing by, A puff of smoke betrayed his lie.
It bothered me that he should trifle with me, my crew and our Parrott Rifle. 
Come on Johnny, try again.. Load Shell… Range One thousand Ten. 
A rebel sniper in a tree, up and took a shot at me.
Cartridge brought to lips to tear it..
Say hello to Mr. Parrott.
