(Cleanliness is a virtue)

Bertram was a filthy child
Rarely washing, unbeguiled.
Where might he have been?
When teachers tried to teach hygiene
Teeth were green, skin was dirty
Friends would call him Dirty Bertie
Take a bath, use a scrubber!
They would shout. He would blubber,
"I take a bath once a year"
"And scrub as well behind each ear"
"Unsatisfactory as that may be"
"I wash my hands before my tea"

Now up steps Bertie's father
With a bucket of soapy lather
"Use this," he said "and don't you skimp"
"Clean yourself you disgusting shrimp"
Exclaiming with a hefty thud,
"I'll get you clean, or my name is mud!"



Cleanliness is a virtue and is highly appreciated. Thumbs​ up dear.

and it is a virtue that it costs to teach the children, your illustration was very good

There's some pure and clean humour in this. Man you've got a rare talent. Love it, would love to see more!

Thank you very much, more to come.

Hilarious, but the message is clear

A nice bit of rhyme that is.

Nice one. Cleanliness is truly a virtue.

This is so funny, but the subjects you talk about are serious. By using some clever humour you manage to really drive the point home. Genious.
