Cry-Baby!

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

Cry-Baby
I’m sure that I would rather die
Than have my playtmates see me cry;
It twists your face and knots your forehead,
And makes you look all cross and horrid;
And every one who sees you cries
“What is the matter with your eyes?”
