Good Conduct - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

I'm a good little soldier cause I never fight,
I brush my teeth, and say my prayers at night.
Although I hit my sister I really do like her,
but because she is a girl I must fight with her.
I'm really a good little soldier I do what must be done,
but when I do it, my mom sees to it, that it ain't, no ain't any fun.
I'm always on the look out for enemies on the run,
and when I see my little brother, boy do I have fun.
I get up on the couch, and yell out real loud,
then dear mommy comes, and hits me on the ouch!
So always remember these few little rules when you're in trouble your fun won't be no reason,
for your butt to get a creasing.
1- Never hit your sister while mom is in the room
2- Never slap your brother or you'll feel a heart of doom
3- Always smile real big when daddy is around
4- Never carry a frown.
Now that you have listened, I hope you do it well,
Or you'll not only get a spanking, but God will send you to Hell.
