Paul Revere's Ride (The Short Version).

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Poem The Midnight Ride Of Paul Revere was 130 lines long.
Kudos! It was certainly a Ripping Yarn. Had Longfellow been Japanese, he might have written it in haiku form, something like this:

Revere rides express
To warn minutemen-"Turn out!
Regulars march forth!"
