'53-'87

by Regina

Water is life, it blesses us from the heavens,
yet, in nineteen fifty-three until nineteen eighty-seven,
a betrayal of the ones who committed to oaths sworn,
on the Camp Lejeune base-
a tragic disgrace,
as clear flowing death brought cancers, birth defects,
how could those years keep going by,
and continue to harm the warriors
of the proud words, "Semper Fi".
