Mind Your Manners
by Bruce Lansky

Don’t drum on the table.
Don’t play with your food.
Don’t talk while you’re chewing;
it’s terribly rude.

Don’t leave the fridge open.
Don’t slam the screen door.
Don’t throw dirty laundry
all over the floor.

Don’t fight with your brother.
Don’t pull the cat’s tail.
Don’t open your big sister’s
personal mail.

Don’t pester your parents.
Don’t stick out your tongue.
Don’t do what your parents did
when they were young.
