Pillars of civilized society
Courteous etiquette lives in civilized mind,
and society finds it, in much of its kind.
Where courtesy makes a man humble,
Etiquette protects us from every fumble.
These human twine traits stand so tall,
And cannot be brought from any mall!
Having them, any one would learn,
Why shouldn't we fight anyone?
These twins help us to stay off the fall,
By virtue of respecting one and all!
Courteous knows how to share and care,
While carrying difficulties just to bear.
Courteous etiquette demands punctuality,
Which is the norm of a civilized society.
Courteous etiquette carries societal bold,
And the society thus shines like gold.
