REALLY AWFUL MANNERS


(Don’t blame me for this one; SidevieW set the theme!) 

SULGRAVE MANOR

SULGRAVE MANOR

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.

 

SNOWSHILL MANOR

SNOWSHILL MANOR

The manners of mobs are revolting –
Lack of manors makes them mad –
And brandishing arms they come bolting,
In a manner that is bad.

WADDESDON MANOR

WADDESDON MANOR

They cannot aspire to manors;
They don’t know how to behave;
And shouldn’t go round manning banners
It’s unmannerly to wave.

 

SULGRAVE MANOR

SULGRAVE MANOR

They have table manners atrocious:
Right cutlery they don’t use;
If some manner of help approaches,
They’d probably all refuse.

WADDESDON MANOR

WADDESDON MANOR

The manners of peasants will never
Improve to any degree:
Folk being, in manners, quite clever
To the manor born must be!

    We had a primary school teacher whose favourite saying was, ‘Manners maketh man!’. I think good manners have become slightly old-fashioned nowadays, more’s the pity! To my mind there is nothing as charming as a man with good manners.

    Thanks for the smiles, Col.

    But I must confess
    I’ve met some manor-born who
    Are quite manner-less:
