Obey Instruction

My little children,
The word of the wise
Sticks like magnet
Whoever obeys instruction
Is a prince in royal apparel
The one that disobeys
Is like a prince in slavery
A disobedient child
Will watch his masquerade
Dance naked at the market square
He will be like a monkey
That climbs tree beyond its branches
Obey good instruction, Children
Obedience is key to your future
It is like the incandescent light in the dark
