Behave Yourself

Behave yourself
Behave yourself
Don’t think a naughty thought
Contain yourself
Restrain yourself
Or it’ll come to nought
It’s discipline you need for sure
You have a job to do
Focus all that energy
Don’t stop until you’re through
You haven’t time
For frippery
And frivolous is out
Can’t condone high spirits
It’s not what we’re about
Set your goals
And aim for them
That’s what we believe
If your mind goes off on tangents
What can we then achieve?
Restrict yourself
Constrict yourself
Fit into our mould
Negate yourself
Berate yourself
Just do as you are told



Retired Adelaide based professional. Lived here most of my life. I have been a teacher of French, English and German since 1974 and value the capacity of the classroom, wherever that might be, to write on the lives of others.
