My Mother told me; young was I
To be respectful of others and to try
Being polite, when spoken to,
And when leaving, say adieu.
Open the doors for others,
Especially women or expecting Mothers.
Give up my seat, when on a bus,
To any female and not to cuss.
Walk on the outside of the walk
And to be sure and listen, not to talk.
Thank you, Mom for what you taught me.
I learned a fine lesson, thanks to thee.
Good manners are always appreciated.
