Modesty!

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

Modesty
The proper time for you to show
Whatever little tricks you know
Is when grown people ask you to;
Then you may show what you can do!

But sometimes mother’s head will ache
With all the jolly noise you make,
And sometimes other people, too,
Can’t spend the time to play with you!
