Sassy Isn’t Classy
A boy named Tyler Tanners
Had such sarcastic manners.
“Get a life,” he told his dad.
People said, “This boy is bad.”

One by one his friends left him.
Lonely now, his life looked grim.
‘Dude, you’re rude,’ he told himself.
Then appeared a wise old elf.

Tyler Tanners felt unglued.
“I can’t change from acting rude.”
“Yes you can,” replied the elf.
Then he jumped off Tyler’s shelf.

“Listen to my helpful tips.
Control your thoughts. Watch your lips.
Choose to speak with nicer manners,
Then you’ll be liked, Tyler Tanners.”

Tyler tried the elf’s advice.
Kids liked Tyler. He was nice.
No longer acting bold and brassy,
Tyler Tanners stopped being sassy.

Why? Because sassy isn’t classy!
