A Chuck Weiskircher Poem © 6/17/15
Dads should all act like Boy Scouts
And not treat others as if they were louts
Not all Dads know the Boy Scout laws
The words never pass through their jaws
A scout is trustworthy, loyal and helpful
For Dads who act like this we are grateful
Scouts are also friendly, courteous and kind
Dads who act like this are a great find.
Scouts are also obedient, cheerful and thrifty
Dads who are this way are thought of as nifty.
Scouts are finally brave, clean and reverent
Dads like this have a happy temperament.
No two Dads are just alike
Some drive cars and others ride a bike.
My Dad is different in many other ways
He knows the Scout laws and also prays.
No one is perfect that is true
But no one is better at caring for the crew.
He has daily chores of work around the place
But it is doubtful he would win a foot race.
Hiking and camping he did when he was younger
And he was always prepared to do something for hunger.
He likes a good book and is reading a couple
Sometimes he reads something that makes him chuckle.
It seems I have turned out like him in many ways
I enjoy reading and cooking and family camping days.
We enjoy seeing each other as often as we can
A large family gathering for Christmas is our plan.
