SEMPER FI

Did you do or did you die?
I did my doin' and it's all a fucking lie.
Marines said, "Just don't die on me man"!!!!
If I had only known about My cherished land.
I soared back and stepped on my own sweet RED soil,
Until, This sight I had not seen in a while, An American girl,
When she saw me, as I was stepping off of the WHITE plane,
She pulled me close, as if to kiss me and she spit in my face,
It burned, but a cold wet fire on my face; I hated every drip of mace.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO how the knife stuck BLUE,
In my mind not overpowering now, I was beginning to see True.
Into my heart it grind's, into my soul and now they say,
Hang up a memorial and it will all go away.
Away, My ASS, I live in a world of SHIT,
When it is Okay to have it run down your face; spit, spit, spit.
I wonder what would have happened if I had died,
God left me here to save my pride.
