Latrine Acrostic

(L)eatherneck Jugg Butt was detailed to clean the barracks latrine,

(A) humiliatin' prospect for a dedicated United States Marine!

(T)he young jarhead wanted so much to gain Captain Grumpy's affection.

(R)eduction in rank he could face if he failed the captain's urinal inspection!

(I)f he flunked, he could end up in the mess hall scrubbin' pots and pans!

(N)o way he wanted to be assigned to trash detail dumpin' garbage cans!

(E)ndearment for sergeants, officers and the Corps he hath a paucity of!
