Order!

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

Order
Make your soldiers march away,
When you’ve finished with your play.
Lead them to the barrack-box,
Make them carry all your blocks.
Teach your doll to go to bed,
Not to lie about instead;
Tell her she must clear away
Everything she’s used to-day.
All your playthings and your toys
Must be trained like girls and boys.
