Manners Haiku ~ ONE YEAR BLOGVERSARY

This week's theme: Manners

Hosted by Jenn at You Know That Blog



Good manners have gone
In a world where rights prevail
Who's responsible?


Social etiquette
Something we never teach now
That must be progress?















TODAY is my one year blogversary (See post below)

  2. I sort of ranted about the same thing, but just having to do with viewing a movie. As someone who worked in schools for years, I can tell you a great many children weren't being taught manners. Very sad.

  7. Madeleine,

    I don't know if it was by accident or design but as I think of parts of my country being looted and burnt, your first haiku totally reflects how I feel.

  8. One thing I could never master is a haiku. Good manners do seem to be gone, especially in teens. Wish at times that we could turn back the hands of time. :)

  15. Congratulations on your one year at blogging Madeleine.... and our society inculcates attitudes, ideas, or habits by persistent instructions I suppose!!
