From the Halls of Montezuma
to the Shores of Sweet LA…

My pet rat Brian
has a thing about uniforms.
Firemen and parking attendants,
cashiers and ushers.
He decided that the Marines
had the most chic outfits
and applied to join up.
While he was waiting
for a response
he watched all the old war movies--
you know, for ambience?
To Hell and Back;
Pearl Harbour;
Sands of Iwo Jima

and regretfully decided that his
sensitive side
would never cope with
all the rat a-tat-tat.
