Perseverance!

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

Perseverance
Tony started bright and early, clearing up his room,
Soon he found he had to stop and make a little broom;
So then he went into the yard to get a little stick,
But the garden needed weeding, so he set about it, quick!
Then he found his wagon he intended to repair,
So he went into the cellar for the hammer that was there;
He’s just begun to build a box, when it was time for dinner,
And that’s why Tony’s father called his son a “good beginner.
