Politness by Gelett Burgess









Politeness

by Gelett Burgess

I think it would be lots of fun

To be polite to every one;

A boy would doff his little hat,

A girl would curtsy, just like that!


And both would use such words as these:

"Excuse me, Sir," and "If you please;"

Not only just at home, you know,

But everywhere that they should go.
