First, get off your island—
Next, a word to the wise: let your mind’s custodian
Be your guide!
And your pride your folly!
And remain innocent as a new-laid egg,
And you’ll be suitable for anybody!
If need be, compromise, use social comparison:
Ride on somebody’s cultured coattails…!
Learn not to clean your fingernails when you
Eat cake, or lick your fingers, or your chops!
To cover your mouth when you cough!
Nor pick your nose in public.
Trash is trash, and is vulgar in any color.
