Marine Corps Poems: Mr. Higgins

Carl | June 28, 2013 

Mr. Higgins built a boat,
I’d say it was first class.
It wasn’t much for lookin’,
And it wasn’t very fast.

But when it came to landings
And you’re headin’ for the wall,
It was good to have beneath you
When you answered to the call!

I’ve had them waiting far below me,
When I scrambled down the net.
There in all that darkness,
Was I scared? Well, you bet!

And if ol’ Mister Higgins,
Is alive in this here day,
Let’s give him a party
Just so we can say,
“Many thanks, Mister Higgins.
You’ve done yourself real proud!”
