A little common courtesy can go a very long way.

Those Butthead Kids, Plate 2Entertain This Philosophy

Entertain this philosophy, just for a while,
pretending to listen is my simple plea.
Your distractions abound, while you smile
entertain this: Philosophy –

it’s basis of thought and quite the decree
of your morals. And sadly the thing you call style
will benefit greatly from one simple key.

Using your manners is more than worthwhile,
and might help you to muster some courtesy.
Now study up – I’ve reached the limit of what I’ll
entertain – this philosophy.

Uhoh, another roundel. I wonder if this is going to be a go-to form, for a while. I like how they become a brain-teaser for me to form. This one is a response to the “Entertain ___” prompt at Writer’s Digest’s Poetic Asides #223 prompt.
