push ups, sit ups, two mile run
slowly, slowly, drinking is fun
push it up, push it up, lying on the floor
to the lips, to the lips, drunk again once more
alcohol, alcohol, bottles all around
deep at night, bathed in light, puking is the sound
during work, here I will play
and our government will me pay
so smile and feel good, you know you want to
cause you're paying me, for the things I do

Gosh did this bring back memories for me.  You've described it so well.  (I spent 4 yrs in the USMC.)  It's been a long time and your poem made it seem like yesterday for me. Gee, thanks a lot!  ;-)

Nice Job!

    perhaps we do pay for your play
   and foot bills for where you stay
  but if your ever called up to serve
your incompetence will sap your nerve
the training you get your taking so light
is supposed to prepare you for a fight
so keep goofing off and having your brew
  one day the joke just may be on you!
