Treasure Island

Hard Corps Not Core


As many of us go through life,
There is something that we to want help us through any strife
We feel like need more
This is what led us to be Hard Corps not Core

It made us turn from a boy to a man
As we were made to push up and down in that Paris Island Sand
Too many in this story can be said that they went to Hollywood

But I guess it is still all good
The story goes more like this
To help achieve our only wish

1st Phase us broke down
2nd Phase turned us around
3rd Phase taught how to be mean

Graduation showed the world what it takes to be a Marine

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
