Please don’t say, “old man,”
to me about your father.
Can tell you, listen not bother,
I was taught to honor.
Those not so young,
most a wise tongue.
Disrespect those older,
shows a heart, colder.
Knowledge learned, years,
books can’t teach you,
hard times, hard work, tears.
To curse mother or father,
shows manners, terrible,
need not do, think, try harder !
Disrespect, disregard, the elderly,
is to trample, important part of society!
To mock, laugh, or to fun,
in a strifeful degrading way,
much about you, does say.
I pray those older, decency show,
appreciation, the road made,
easier life and journey, all know.
Remember God willing, you’ll be old,
life careful, you may be betrayed!!
“The best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.”
