The Warrior’s Due

The Warrior’s Due

By Garland Davis

We were not there

To be heroes

Our sense of duty brought

Us to the Gulf of Tonkin

The war kept us there

We brought

Lightning from the skies

And thunder from the guns

Toiling and waiting

To be detached

For a long-awaited week

With the girls of Subic Bay

Who will Love us

Long time

For that is the warrior’s due.
