Zach's cake for the Blue and Gold Banquet


This is the cake that Zach built.


This is the campsite, to keep the Scouts warm,
and protect them from elements in case of a storm,

on the cake that Zach built.


This is a pine tree,
so carefully made,
for a Scout to sit near and rest in the shade.

On the campsite, to keep the Scouts warm,
and protect them from elements in case of a storm,

on the cake that Zach built.


This is a sleeping bag, rolled and ready for slumber,
Inside the cozy tent, for the Scouts to sleep under,

near the pine tree, so carefully made,
for a Scout to sit near and rest in the shade,

on the campsite, to keep the Scouts warm,
and protect them from elements in case of a storm,

on the cake that Zach built.


This is the fire, crackly and hot,
Perfect for hot dogs and providing a warm spot,

not far from the sleeping bag, rolled and ready for slumber,
inside the cozy tent, for the Scouts to sleep under,

near the pine tree, so carefully made,
for a Scout to sit near and rest in the shade,

on the campsite, to keep the Scouts warm,
and protect them from elements in case of a storm,

 on the cake that Zach built.


This...


is Zach.

(Heaven help us.)
