Lincoln

 

ARRANGEMENT: Five Cub Scouts repeat lines of poem below. If they are uniformed. a large Lincoln silhouette can be used as backdrop on stage. Or the boys can all be dressed in Lincoln costumes.

1ST CUB: Lincoln was a long man. He liked the out of doors.

He liked the wind blowing and the talk in country stores.

He liked telling stories. He liked telling jokes.

"Abe's quite a character", said quite a lot of folks.

2ND CUB: Lots of folks in Springfield saw him every day.

Walking down the street in his gaunt, long way.

Shawl around his shoulders, letters in his hat,

"That's Abe Lincoln." They thought no more than that.

3RD CUB: Knew that he was honest; guessed that he was odd;

Knew he had a cross wife though she was a Todd.

Knew he had three little boys who liked to shout and play;

Knew he had a lot of debts it took him years to pay.

4TH CUB: Knew his clothes and knew his house; "That's his office, here"

Blame good lawyer; on the whole; though he's sort of queer. "

"Sure, he went to Congress once. But he didn't stay.

Can't expect us all to be smart as Henry Clay".

5TH CUB: "Need a man for troubled times? Well I guess we do.

Wonder who we'll ever find? Yes... I wonder who."

That is how they met and talked; knowing and unknowing.

Lincoln was the green pine. Lincoln kept on growing.
