Sally, having swallowed cheese,
Directs down holes the scented breeze,
Enticing thus with baited breath
Nice mice to an untimely death.

Eric, I'll be the malaprop and you the maladroit. May your cat above be eaten by a Dogberryism.

On a side note of research, I just discovered that the Aizu clan had a Gatling Gun at their disposal during the Boshin War.

There was a reference in the accounts of 'spiral artillery' which I had taken as rifled guns but it seems cutting edge technology (the Gatling gun, still using paper cartridges during the American Civil War and thus less than effective - though 'Beast' Butler tried) had made it to the shores of Japan.
