Poem: Little children follow me

A careful man I must be,
Little children follow me.
I do not dare go astray,
For they will go the self-same way.

I cannot escape their watchful eye,
Whatever they see me do, they'll try.
Like me they say they're going to be,
Little children who follow me.

I must remember as I go,
Through summer suns and winter snows,
As I am building, for the years to be,
That little children follow me.

update: as contributed by Viewtru in my comments:

"If with your wife you do hardcore,
Beware the monkeys at the door.
Make sure they couldn't see you two,
Coz monkeys see and monkeys do."

Just a little contri of my own:

Thank you!

When Auntie gives you a cookie
You learnt from young to say "Thank you!"

When you are handed a red packet on New Year's Day
You wish the giver: "Happy New Year, thank you!"

When Boss gives you a raise
You gush: "Thank you, thank you!"

So one is taught civil behaviour
At school, at work and at the dinner table

Also, Elders beseech you:
If someone slaps you on the left cheek
Please turn him your right cheek

But I wouldn't advise you thus
In my wisdom gotten in golden years
I would beseech you,shout back:
"No, no thanks!
I don't fire

children are fast learners....
they are like a piece of white cloth...
you dye it with harmony happy colours...then it will be rainbow coloured...
if you dye it with grey,black, then it will be gloomy and dark...

lots of parents changed because of their children....my uncles dare not to say bad words because their little one learn and say "daddy also said so"

I'll continue on the poem a bit:

"If with your wife you do hardcore,
Beware the monkeys at the door.
Make sure they couldn't see you two,
Coz monkeys see and monkeys do."
