Marine Corps Poetry: A Different Breed

Carl | January 28, 2014 

Ain’t no doubt about it,
We are a different breed:
We’ve fought our country’s battles
When ‘ere there was a need.

We fought with pike and musket
Thru shot and thru shell.
When it come to combat,
We do it very well.

We cleaned out the pirates
Of far off Tripoli
And the Halls of Montezuma
Is part of history.

They call upon us every time
There is trouble in the wind
And here we come a runnin’,
Every kith and kin.

I guess it always will be
The calling of the Corps
To stand up for the country
Just as in days of yore.

So, muster up, you gyrenes!
It ain’t over yet
But when we bring you home
T’will be with no regrets.
