When in doubt - consult a SCOUT


When in doubt

Consult a Scout

He "should" know

What most things are about.




He ties things with odd knots,


And sends messages with dots,


He cooks upon an open fire


And of camping, never seems to tire.

For water sports


He builds a raft.


Upon the land


He knows many a craft.



Can tell the time by sun and stars


And directs people in their cars.


In some most unusual climes


You'll even find him climbing pines.




His hat with brim so broad


He can use for water to hoard.


His tie into a sling he makes


When Johnny falls and an arm does break.




It's first aid kit and shoe polish,


Mug, fork, knife, spoon and a dish,


Packed with tent and sleeping bag,


Into a rucksack marked with a tag .... S C O U T.




(With acknowledgments "The Bugle")





PS.. We are still on school holidays!
