Justice!

Here’s the next installment of manners and etiquette (courtesy of the Goops).

Justice
Whenever brother’s sent to bed,
Or punished, do  not go
And peer at him and jeer at him,
And say, “I told you so!”

Nor should you try to make him laugh
When he has been so bad;
Let him confess his naughtiness
Before you both are glad.
