Fortitude!

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

Fortitude
When you have been a naughty child,
Or taken more than was your share,
When you’ve been sulky, cross or wild,
You must not say, “Oh no, I don’t care!”

But when you hate to see it rain,
and when it’s time to comb your hair,
And when you have a little pain,
Then you can say, “Oh, I don’t care!”
