Scout's Honor

Scout's Honor
 
When I was a boy, yep, I was a Scout,
And whole time I was, no Scoutmasters came out.
Nope, they stayed in the closet, if any were there,
And no parents protested our Scout meeting prayer.
We believed in our creed, truly honored our oath,
Our duty to God in those years was not loathe.
No, we pledged our young lives that we'd do our best,
To honor traditions behind our Scout crest.
 
But our honor's now questioned by a liberal elite,
That will settle for nothing but our total defeat.
Renounce God we're told, or we'll take you to court,
Scouting's now not for kids it's become lawyers' sport.
No, we haven't a right to now say who shall lead
The children we hopefully entrust to this creed.
So these possible predators we're told now to trust,
And hope our young boys don't fall prey to their lust.
 
I've had it with liberals, I'm full up to here,
They've pushed me beyond any warped legal fear
To the point that I say that whatever they do,
My mission in life is SCREW THE ACLU.
They've robbed me of Christmas, robbed me of youth,
In their misguided crusade for their brand of truth.
Like good ol' Dan Rather, ACLU you're a goner,
I pledge that to you on my cherished Scout's Honor.
