Momma Used to Say

You have two ears and one mouth
use them in that proportion

When you're pointing your finger
at someone else,
You're pointing three fingers
back at yourself

Never show up 
empty handed

Mind your manners,
Remember whose you are.

It's good to have lots of friends
but keep your own mind

I cut your sandwich in half
so you can share with a friend without

People can't hear you
if you're yelling at them

Everything's okay when you obey

Did we forget?
