Proper & Poised

Proper & Poised

A Poem by Sara

My grandparents are very old fashioned and I by no means am an exception to their ridiculously high standards, so this one is for my granny

Proper in meaning but lacking in poise
Separates little girls from little boys
Polite in their manners, but lacking in shame
It's such a tedious game
Never should you skip or sing
You should always say the prettiest thing
Now that they have you walking and talking
You need to learn how to dress
And fix your hair that's apparently a mess
Bows and ribbons
Ribbons and strings
These are a few of my least favorite things
So as you sit here
And read in wonder
Know that these are things my grandparents ponder
For I wear all black
And do my hair as I please
I blow my nose after I sneeze
My manners are always quite profound
Now I will scream, for these rules I don't wish to be around
