There is an island, not without a camera on, blare out assuredly with no doubt, May give them support!
And so shall dole out the services of its nationals to a bought system, by those whose morals have long abort
Sub par marines, an infant looking infantry of gullible teenagers with minds under ages of control
Fished from schools of a current curriculum with a wave of youths not comprehensive in their true goal
Being trained in a class lowered in standards to serve one's not up in class, just receive the upper handout
Over the not so privileged that become disenchanted the further education lands them in debt, many drop out
Now here is where the military falls in and wades
Position themselves as favourable employers with trips abroad whiles discovering trades
But soon discover they are aboard ships of crusades
On invasions for political missions to kill and snatch also illegal raids
