Munday on Monday: Old sayings

Old sayings

An adage which has oft occurred:

That children should be seen, not heard.

(A maxim of a classic chime,

Left over from a sterner time.)

But having listened every day

And heard what grown-ups have to say

And how they say it — I’ll suggest

A slight revision would be best;

Let’s take the adage somewhat stirred—

Let grown-ups thus be seen, not heard.
