An old man looking back in time. . .

Non Gratum Anus Rodentum
(Not Worth A Rat's Ass)

Stimer post about the end of World War II in Europe.
Got me to think, about how I ended enlisting into our beloved Corps.
I left before graduating, because I knew the draft was waiting.
My four maternal uncles, had all served in the U.S Army.
From a very young age my dear grandmother taught me service.
Was an honor duty to fore-fill.
My grades were no problem, I carried mostly 'A's.
Maybe an occasional 'B'.
Coming out of boot camp, I was a private with a 'marksman' rifle badge.
Ten years later, I was a staff-sergeant and the holder of the 'expert' rifle badge for several years.
I had been in the infantry and recon.
Throw in one year on the rifle range as a 'primary marksmanship instructor'.
And seventeen months in Vietnam.
With that duty came our Marine Corps Core Values, that have stood me well among other men.
Would I ever thought of dodging service in our armed forces?
Best to throw in your fate among other men's fate.
Luck of the draw, determine the OUTCOME.

In the DON THE CON/CROOK brain.
There is a 'left' and 'right'.
In the left side, there-s nothing right.
In the right side, there-s nothing left.

DON THE CON/CROOK asked the adoring crowd.
Who's going to pay for the wall?
And the crowd responded in unison.
And then the crowd shouted, at the tops of their lungs.
You said Mexico was going to PAY

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2

What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!
