(Don’t blame me for this one; SidevieW set the theme!)
Good manors are quite nifty housing
Where the lords can live in state,
But not when a mob they’re arousing,
Filled with jealousy and hate.
The manners of mobs are revolting –
Lack of manors makes them mad –
And brandishing arms they come bolting,
In a manner that is bad.
They cannot aspire to manors;
They don’t know how to behave;
And shouldn’t go round manning banners
It’s unmannerly to wave.
They have table manners atrocious:
Right cutlery they don’t use;
If some manner of help approaches,
They’d probably all refuse.
The manners of peasants will never
Improve to any degree:
Folk being, in manners, quite clever
To the manor born must be!
