Why the tantrum, why the tears?
Have you learned nothing in 5 years?
Life will refuse more things by far
than this desired Hershey bar.
Consider, when you’re in your teens
and know what being thwarted means,
the Howling strategy won’t work –
the girls will think that you’re a jerk
and guys won’t want you on the team.
It’s time that you acquired a gleam
of common sense! Your mom’s a wreck
and strangers long to wring your neck!
So learn to think of others more
and not have tantrums in a store –
There are rewards in self-control.
You might receive a tootsie roll.
