Gifted - Poem by Cheryl Cheng
Last week, my teacher yelled.
He scolded us for talking loud.
'You're smart, you're talented, '
'But that's no excuse for RUDENESS!
In life you need manners,
No one cares if you're gifted
If you never say please or thank you! '
Some cried, some protested,
Some sat there and thought.
My teacher was right;
We gifties have big brains
And mind your manners.
