Just behave


Just behave

“Just behave and make no noise”
Here you have no choice
Simply under my control
Do not get up and make unnecessary call

“Teacher, teacher”
That man offers
Smile with jokes
Can you just take him to task?

No, no! Make me no fool
If you want to be successful
Write what I say and behave
You will write only what I want to have!

No, you are not allowed
Instructions have to be followed
You are free alright but under my supervision
As you have yet to develop vision

Madame, but we know little about etiquette
Teacher blasted: “no more questions, I hate it”
If you want to be comfortable and peaceful!
I am very strict and powerful

Children kept quite as teacher had newly joined
Her talent with vigor was combined
She wanted strict discipline and good manners
But alas! All children were not good beginners

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
