"DON'T BE A SKUNK!"
Says Berton Braley.
Oh, be not so mighty
And haughty of mien.
Your ways highty-tighty
Are foolish, I ween.
Off of your pinnacle!
Down from your cloud,
Cease to be cynical,
Mix with the crowd.
There's no special virtue
In your little bunch.
To mingle won't hurt you
And that's a safe hunch.
Don't sulk and be mournful
Up there on yourv shelf.
Don't sniff and be scornful.
Get wise to yourself!
Come on, now, away with
The life of a snob.
It's better to play with
The commonplace mob;
I'll not be obtrusive,
But heed my advice
The skunk is exclusive,
i But not very nice!
