Marine Corps Poems: Raggedy Ass Marines

In the days of raggedy-ass Marines,

We were spit-shined

And damn well clean.

Our brass shined like stars

Like an officer’s bars,

And there warn’t no

In between.

In the days of raggedy-ass Marines,

We scrubbed decks

And also latrines.

We washed clothes

In a bucket,

In lye soap

We stuck it.

And it came out

Salty and clean!

If a brush was handy

Then it sure was dandy.

For we were

Raggedy-ass Marines.

In the days of raggedy-ass Marines,

We salted our belts

To be white and clean.

We put blanco on our packs,

Had foot lockers

By our racks.

After all,

We were raggedy-ass Marines.

When we were raggedy-ass Marines

Our uniforms were spotless and clean.

With our knees a showin’ through

And our butt ends, too.

That is why they called us

Raggedy-ass Marines.

The 26-year-old, who has been with the battalion for about a year, said he always wanted to join a reconnaissance battalion because of the training and missions. “We are doing this training to stay proficient with our M4 (carbine) and M9 (pistol) to keep up with the standards of our training and readiness manual,” said Manchester, N.H. native, SSgt Matthew Sullivan, a team leader with Bravo Company.

Marine Corps Poems: My Ol’ Back Porch

I’m sittin’ on
My ol’ back porch,
A spittin’ seeds
And swattin’ flies,
And thinkin’ of days
That used to be.

I was once a young Marine,
No fightin’ action
Had I seen
Until the Corps
Found itself a war.

It wasn’t long after this,
A few months at the best,
I found myself
A goin’ south,
I was not alone
You’d guess.

We jumped out of our
Higgins boats
And charged ashore
Real fast,
It seemed there
Were some fellers there
That said we could not pass.

Well, we paid them fellers
Not much mind
We gave them such a whuppin’
They tucked their tails
A ‘tween their legs
And whimpered
They was through.

There warn’t much left of them
When we left those
Sandy shores,
But they had some relatives
Our existence
They deplored.

So we set out
To let them know,
We warn’t much
On quittin’,
So we just had
To kick some butt
And all of it
Was hissin’.

Now this went on for quite a spell,
We whipped their asses good,
To say that we were winnin’,
Well, that was understood.

Then some feller got real smart
And made the biggest bomb.
And it was Sayonara
And we all left for home.

So here I sit
On my ‘ol back porch
A sittin’ and a thinkin’.
I don’t regret I joined the Corps,
It gave me some adventure,
And if I had not done it
I’d a missed out on the drinkin’!
