Courtesy is catching
like a cough or cold.
Smiles are contagious,
spread by young and old.
Caring is infectious,
saving us from strife.
Manners make a difference
to our way of life.
Kindness opens doors
leading to respect.
Treating someone fairly
always is correct.
Let’s create a feeling
of good will toward all.
With concern for others,
we’ll be walking tall.
