The Lone Rifleman

by Cpl Daniel Snuffer, USMC, 1972
1/9/3 - "The Walking Dead"

You may have a lot of evil, boiling in your soul.
You may seek the lives of others, and your evil take itís toll.
You may answer freedoms call with death, to those that seek its truth.
You may desire the hounds of hell; devour all who love true peace.
You may seek to hide your victimís ashes, in the earth or desert sand.
You may seek to rule over innocent, peace loving people's land.

But alas you hear this message, and you should hear it very clear.
For no matter what evil you do, be it far or very near.
God will bring a retribution, which will make you pale with fear.
You will not go quietly, heavens thunder youíll soon hear.

Iíve been called by many names; each one should make you fear.
Iím the last thing youíll see, before your death draws near.
I am the lone rifleman, best shot the world has ever seen.
I am the worldís greatest weapon, and the best thatís ever been!
For you see that your evil doing, it has not gone unseen.
Iíll mail you to hell in a body bag, postage paid by this Marine.
