Riffing with Palin

“Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the second of June, in twenty-eleven;
Recounted by Palin as she made
A riff on that famous day and year
.

He said to his friend, “If the British march
By land or sea from the town to-night,
Ring those bells in the belfry arch
And send warning shots as a signal, all right? 
Ring once if by land, and twice if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ringing my bells and shooting my guns
To warn those British that, by darn,
All our countryfolk will be free and armed!””
