2nd Place in the Pinewood Derby (#1034)

I’m extremely proud of my son,
On his very first derby, he won,
We registered with his car in tow,
Took a seat and waited for the show,
He was excited to see the races,
As well as the other scouts’ faces,
Soon his car raced down the track,
A blur of red, white, blue and black,
4 races later the totals were weighed,
Some sat worried, and others prayed,
Upon the board, the numbers popped,
In that instant, everyone stopped,
The room erupted in sudden cheers,
And a few low-key rolling tears,
His first race was over, and he won,
I’m extremely proud of my son,
