The longer I’m alive, the more I know
the quality I value most of all.
It isn’t seeking love or leisure’s slow
procession, and I’m not in money’s thrall.
I treasure courtesy. What makes me glow
is thoughtfulness, consideration. Maul
my time with rudeness and I’ll swiftly go.
What I describe as culture’s benefit
is smooth, and not concerned with etiquette.
