Goodness may be worth a damn these days,
gracious old ways a fad – obsolete,
but cast it not away or be insensitive;
instead – embrace it, enhance it,
it is your irresistible attractiveness –
a trait that makes you a decent human.
It is your life’s work – your craft,
hone it, protect it, and display it
with the utmost care of an artist,
leave it not to chance, or be lazy about it–
your reputation.
