Remembering Dad

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.
