The Marine’s Requiem Blood. Dripping, slipping, rivers flowing Whe sources of it are unknowing Whether they be living or dying-- Some of them have just stopped trying. Sweat. Toil of labor for the home To defeat the enemy (as they are known.) To defend their beloved earthly home-- These Marine's love of country has been shown. Tears. Running down a soldier's cheek As he wanders, lost and weak. What is it that he does seek? Rest from battle's cursed reek. Remember the dead Marines.
