The Boy Scout

January 11, 2008
By Sarah Weatherly, Garland, TX

The man with many badges
Knows how to pitch a tent
But he fails to realize
That he makes my heart contempt

He reaches the summit
Yet he wishes to climb higher
The camp is nice and warm
I’m the one that is on fire

The Boy Scout reaches camp
And writes to those at home
I’m hoping that is says, “Dear Sarah”
As I sit alone
