Mcleap - Poem by Clarence A. Graham, Jr.

McLeap was a soldier in the nited States Army
McLeap was the best leaper in the Army

He could leap a far distance and place an explosive
And leap back to safety

On o forced march with full field pack
he leaped over a mound and sat on a cactus

McLeap was taken by Jeep to camp for sick call
At the Infirmary, the nurse removed each needle with pliers

Then, she put alcohol on each hole to kill the germs
After that, McLeap had to be confined to the barracks for a week

McLeap never leaped again
And his name was changed to McLove
