so polite
         eats and never runs

           leaves a tip
every             time

     good manners
           knows how
                  to be
         have

  respect for what
                              is
         delicate with all
                      picks the bag
  opens up
finds the course

               is never coarse but
    turns the lid
 to               a plate
the     appropriate
     napkin

no mess    efficient
                        delicate
no waste
                  receives the meal

with honor
         and    leaves

the bones as
                           prasad

finally
                    leaving
a tip

five and some ones
              a ten
never leaves
          without a

                           thank you

the model
                   raccoon
