In Search Of Alexander Pope Poem by William Chaplar


She who keeps instruction will soon learn a better way,
as will he who shuns correction oftentimes be led astray.
Discipline is not defined as never having fun.
Just don't do it in lieu of things you know need to be done.
Nobody can do everything; we all know this is true.
Regardless, though, what you've been told, there's something you can do.
They receive wisdom that walk with the wise,
but strife comes to those who have fools for allies.
Rather than cower from mountains too big for you to climb,
scale those you can and you'll recall they too were big one time.
Stay mindful of your actions because kids are watching you.
Tell them, "Do as I say" and then make sure that's what you do.
It matters not which rationalization that you've heard,
a man of principle makes sure his actions match his words.
Just so you know, these couplets were all written with the hope
that they might be compared to those of Alexander Pope.
