“I want to be a Green Jacket”

I want to be a Green Jacket;

I want to stand so proud

I want to March at a PACE

That others aren’t allowed!

I want to wear the rifle Green

To stand in the woods

And not be seen

My trusted SLR by my side

Ready and waiting to kill with pride

140 paces a minute

Proud to say that I was in it.

A Green Jacket I am

A Green Jacket I’ll stay

For that’s what life chose for me

From then to this day.
