History 101. . .rioting in Haiti 2018. . .

During the ′Missiles of October′ 1962, after the Russian ships were returning back.
First, the ships that were carrying most of the 1st Marine Division.
Went to Puerto Rico, Vegas island and some of us stood aboard to act as security.
The ship went to ′Rosy Roads′ for resupply.
The ship went back to load the Marines, we had left in Vegas.
After that we went to Haiti, the ship was divided as a ′port′ and ′starboard′ watch.
One went ashore and the other stood aboard ship.
The watch I was part of, stood aboard and went into haiti on the second day.
We were met by some Haitians selling beer from these small ice cases.
Boy, that beer sure was cold, the watch before us, said make sure you go to the rum distilleries.
Which we did, after we came back aboard ship.
A few of us were on the fan tail, out of the dark, we hear this voice speaking French first than Spanish.
He was on a small boat loaded with some wood cravings, I spoke to him in Spanish.
He told me that a good numbers of Haitians learn to speak in Spanish to trade in the Dominican Republic.
Which is most of the East part of Hispaniola and on the West is Haiti.
Today, there′s riots taking place in Haiti, I think is about high gas prices.
It′s funny how one thing, will awaken another memory.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!
