Cool "A Marine"

Take a man and put him alone,
Put him twelve thousand miles from home.
Empty his heart of all but blood,
Make him live in sweat and mud.
This is the life I have to live,
And my soul to the devil I give.
You have your parties and drink your beer,
While young men are dying here.
You paint your signs and have your fun,
Then refuse to use your gun.
There is nothing else for you to do,
Then I'm suppose to die for you.
There is one thing that you don't know,
And that's where I think you should go.
I'm already here and it's to late.
I'll hate you till the day I die,
You made me hear my buddy cry.
I saw his leg and his blood shed,
Then I heard them say, "This one's dead".
It was a large price for him to pay,
To let you live another day.
He had the guts to fight and die,
To keep the freedom you live by.
By dying your life he buys,
But who gives a damn if a Marine dies.

Found in a dead Marines pocket.
Quang Tri Province, Vietnam, June 6, 1969
