"Scoutmaster Goodbye"©

The purpose of a scout troop is to turn boys into men—
So the leader must be one on whom they always may depend.

The best kind of a leader doesn’t tell boys what to do
He gives them just enough so they can work the problem through.

Many leaders have scout skills, but it takes more than that,
To be the leaders’ leader and, wear the Scoutmaster’s hat.

The one they call, “The Master”, the leader with the final say,
Is the person who the boys look to, to show them the right way.

We’ll miss you Scoutmaster, and for a role model like you,
We just want to say that we are truly thankful, too,

For all your years of service, for the boys you urged to “try”
For all the hikes and campouts, “Thank you”, and, “Goodbye”.
