Guard Drill

by | Jun 4, 2006 | Poetry | 0 comments

Left-right, left-right, left-right,
“Guard will turn to the right,”
left-right, left-right, “Right turn:”
two-three, left stamp, left-right,
“By the right, Guard, eyes right:”
right pace, left pace, eyes right,
left-right, left-right, left-right,
“Guard, eyes front, by the right:”
right-left, right-left, right-left,
“Guard: Halt,” check-pace, one-two,
stamp on the left to halt…
“Guard: to your Duties, Fall-out,
Officer on Parade:”
right turn, two-three, left stamp,
two-three, arm up, Salute:
Pause: two-three, right arm down,
two-three, march-three-paces.
