Is the greatest contribution,

To the welfare of our land,

Some one who breaks his promise, and cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow,

Who in times of war and strife,

Goes off to serve his country

And offers up his life?

The politicians stipend

And the style in which he lives,

Are sometimes disproportionate,

To the service he gives.

While the ordinary Marine,

Who offered up his all,

Is paid off with a medal

And perhaps a pension, small.
