Little Gentleman

We mustn’t blow our nose, you know
In public it’s not nice.
We mustn’t take a sweetie, till
The giver asks us twice.
We mustn’t say a naughty word,
We mustn’t do a thing.
One never knows when one may meet
A Duke, an Earl, a King.
We must be good and always be
Alert for social graces,
What would a titled lady think
If we had dirty faces?
When we grow up to be a man,
We’ll know how we should act,
A perfect little gentleman
With manners, dear, and tact.
Civilisation is a veneer, easily soluble in alcohol.
