Once A Marine
Carl | September 17, 2012
Once an old Marine was walking
Down life’s long and winding road
When on the trail before him, A mighty cloud arose.
It was Terror, Wrath and Genocide
Out to make their rounds,
Tearing up the countryside
And pillaging the grounds.
Then they checked up toe to toe
With the lone Marine.
They said “You’re looking weary, Boy,
And just a little lean.
You know we’re in hurry,
So you’d better step aside,
And if you know what’s good for you
You’ll find a place to hide.”
Well, the old salt never uttered a solitary word,
But slowly drew his K-Bar
As he mustered up the nerve.
Then he said, “You aint passing here -
Not while Im on watch.
But if your feeling lucky,
Lets crank this up another notch.”
And when it all was over
The carnage was a sight;
Seems Terror, Wrath and Genocide
Had lost the will to fight.
So dont you be discouraged
And dont give in to fright
“Cause there’s “Always a Marine” watching
And ready for the fight.
