Scouting

The sun beat down on a group of adults...
Each a friend to the other...
But what they were doing on this day...
Would benefit many another.

Tents went up...
Tarps went down...
Games and fun were put out.
It is almost time for a camp...
For a kid who calls himself a Scout.

They take no penny...
They take no dime...
For the job they do...
They instead will take their pay...
By hearing many say "thank you".

On this day...
With the sun shining bright...
They could already hear the noise...
That comes from a group of happy kids...
Better known as boys.

They say that Scouting is for kids...
And, yes, that is very true.
But please remember...
To recognize the adults...
Who make it so, now through September.
