Full Metal Jacket - Poem by Susan Sparks

Disgusting Fatbody
Will somebody
Please...
Stop this movie!

The bird, the bird
Well everybody knows
About the bird.
The bird, the bird.

Semper Fi
Do or die
Kill, kill
Or better still

Proud Marines
Killing machines
Clean the latrines
Ya know what I mean?


Me want sucky.”
Aren't you lucky?
Okay- $5.00
“Me luv you long time.”

Full Metal Jacket
Why all the racket?
Locked and loaded
Just exploded.

Bang bang
You're dead.
Poor Drill Sergeant
Just lost his head.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is about the movie 'Full Metal Jacket', but it is just as well about my biological father, who was a Marine Corps Drill Sergeant for many years in the WWII and Korean War era. He was the meanest man I've ever known.
