Subject: Poem: Santa is an Eagle Scout
Hello List Members
About 6 or 7 years ago I wrote a poem called "Santa is
an Eagle Scout." It's a poem that is meant to be
read aloud at Troop or Pack meetings. I've read it to
my units at our xmas party meetings, and everybody
seems to enjoy it. So now I'm making it available
to you, if you want to use it. Here it is:
SANTA IS AN EAGLE SCOUT
Santa is an Eagle Scout,
it's very plain to see.
Just listen to this little poem
and you'll agree
Santa navigates by the stars
on Christmas Eve.
After all, his first merit badge
To fly his sleigh
Aviation merit badge next.
Santa and his reindeer
have a friendly alliance.
He learned it all
while earning Veterinarian Science.
Engineering merit badge
was very hard for Santa Claus.
Going down a chimney is an engineering feat,
if there ever was.
Santa's service project
was for all the boys and girls.
He delivers toys
all around the world.
And lastly, Santa's work on
Communication merit badge was out of sight
That's when he thought of the phrase
"Merry Christmas and to all a good night"
