Family Therapy with the Goops

I love this family . . .

The Goops (not their real name)

The Goops they lick their fingers
And the Goops they lick their knives:
They spill their broth on the tablecloth
Oh, they lead disgusting lives!
The Goops they talk while eating,
And loud and fast they chew;
And that is why I’m glad that I
Am not a Goop, are you?

    Ah, yes, the Goops:
    Let me introduce a Race,
    Void of beauty and grace
    Extraordinary creatures,
    With a paucity of features.
    Though their forms are fashioned ill,
    They have manners stranger still;
    For in rudeness they’re precocious,
    They’re atrocious, They’re ferocious!
    Yet you’ll learn, if you are Bright,
    Politeness from the Impolite.
    When you’ve finished with the book,
    At your conduct, take a look;
    Ask yourself, upon the spot,
    Are you a Goop, or are you not?
    For although its fun to see them,
    Its terrible to be them!

    ~Gelett Burgess

    We have the book, Goops and How to Be Them as well as More Goops and How to Be Them! Delightfully funny and charming–but educational as well! 🙂
