A POEM ON THE HOWITZERS Why are hoop skirts like imported mules? Because it's an improvement on the jackass. Why are the New Howitzers Superior to the old? Because they performed a wonderful task; They marched down to Norfolk, A town of great sin. Home again, home again, Tingerling ling. Perhaps their fighting qualities are the best, Their coming Carlton McCarthy Will explain the rest. This is composed by Andrews, An old Howitzer Vet That works every day And toils and sweats. The best he eats is cold corn bread, And sleeps at night on an old straw bed. He lost a car of oranges By the birthday of Lee, And left him as poor As an old bumble-bee -THE POET.
