Ready On The Left and Dress Blues

Ready On The Left and Dress Blues Blues
By Howard Schnauber

READY ON THE LEFT

Ready on the left —
ready on the right —
ready on the firm' line

Let out half a breath
close down half an eye
Squeeze that cartridge off
and know it's a miss or hit
from that guy down in the pit

When you've made your shot
get your ass back in the slot
and work that earthy ditch
like a sorry son of awhich
was the name of the state
where you said you was born?
'cause you'd better there return
if you can't make better scores
than a pair of Maggie's drawers

And so Parris Island boot
although just a raw recruit
hunker on down and SHOOT
Hold steady now and DO't

Ready on the left —
ready on the right —
ready on the firm' line

Chris Madeira, Jr.
