Written for the Sportsmen's Review by Mrs. M.F. “Wanda” Lindsley
Having a little time to spare
I offer the reader some news here and there,
Of people of note and wide renown,
All well known in many a town.
I notice that Crosby's not shooting for fun
When he enters a match with his Baker gun.
(Crosby represented Baker 1897-1899 then switched to a Smith)
And J.A.R.E. from a small town out west
Is as good as they make them, if indeed not the best.
Quiet Fred says not a word
Just goes out and kills all his birds.
Then there is Dan LeFever and Courtney as well,
The one builds good guns for the other to sell.
As a salesman, King Tuck is as good as they make
And the Parkers are pleased with the orders he takes.
And Rolla who hails from the wild, wooly west
With his banjo and gun, can't say which he plays best.
But of one thing I'm certain, the boys like him well
And to his marksmanship none can excel.
Here's hoping I'll meet you again, as before,
On the trapshooting field in a battle for gore.
I'll write no more words nor close with a song
I just hope I haven't kept you too long.
