Politeness

Politeness

I’m told to be polite to my teacher.
And of course, to my principal, as well.
If I’m smart I’ll be polite to the policeman,
Or he just might put me in jail.

I ought to be polite to the doctor,
Cuz she’s gonna cure my flu.
And I better be polite to the lawyer,
In case I ever get sued.

The rule, I’m told, is to be polite
To all the grownups I see.
But my own rule is I’ll be as polite
As the grownups are to me.

    • You always make me smile. And very appreciative of your kindness. Yes, joanbarbarasimon, it would be great if you would share it with your blog friends.
      Thanks, friend…and remember, there are 24 hours in a day…that’s a long time to smile, even for so who is obviously so practiced at it as you. :)
