Graphic 'Marine Corps Pride' created by GySgt David Townsend, USMCThe Rusty
The rusty Marine,
born gallant and braveTo his country, his allegiance raised.He served in
war to honor and protectIn battle he did not defect.
trenches, gunfire and hellHis honor and pride never fell.For in his
heart, his faith was strongYet for home he did long.
Now he sits, tired,
forlornFor his youth he does mourn.Because it ran so quickly byHe
often thinks, "How time did fly."
Then he dons his old
dress bluesAnd in his spirit, a change of hues.He straightens up and
stands with prideHis great honor, he can not hide.
Then he begins to
gently weepThe memories come, pile upon heap.A single tear falls from
his eyeAs he whispers, "Semper Fi."~ by Jennifer A. Wallace ~
