Social Skills

Each of us has the need to be a smidge

Humid on his inside

Though it’s often the prudent thing

To have quite a

Boston Brahmin ish

Dry spell where it shows,

For the sake of public consumption.

Proper public comportment requires

A bit of starch on occasion

But relax and show the

Wrinkles when possible.

An Export of truth and mercy

Will lead to an Import of

Happiness and joy.

Invite many to share your

Egg nog and candy canes,

And few to see your

Sack cloth and ashes.
