Battery Parade (by Mike Subritzky)

The BSM yelled “Haircut!”,
and looked me in the eye.
The RSM yelled “Sideboards!”,
but I didn’t ask him why?

The BC he yelled “Hat Badge!”,
his mouth it gave a twitch!
My Section Boss yelled “Muddy Boots!”,
the dirty rotten bitch!

My Section Sarge yelled “Crinkled Greens!”,
Ye Gods what have I done?
You’ve just become a Gunner son…
And this is 1 – 6 – 1.
