More Goops and How Not to Be Them by Gelett BurgessDanger!
Ink, ink! What do you think!
Youre sure to be stained, if you play with the ink!
Youre sure to get black, if you play with the ink-well,
Before you begin it, just stop once, and think well!
All over your fingers, all over your face,
All over your clothes, and all over the place!
Your motherll be angry, your fatherll say, There!
I said not to touch it; you said youd take care!
When Goops are so mischievous, they have to drink
Forty-four dozen bottles of raven black ink!
The Goops are back with their sloppy manners, rudeness and general all around naughtiness, setting an example of how not to behave, much to the endless delight of children of all ages. First published in 1903, this second of the well-known Goop books contains many of the funniest and most original of Burgesss famous rhymes.
Children and their parents will delight in the antics of these amusing little creatures as they scamper about on every page in hilarious drawings by the author. Eighty seven verses give the dos and the donts of justice, frankness, aint, walking with Papa, piano torture, how to eat soup, books, manners, cheating, visiting, picking and stealing, loyalty, indolence, exaggeration, noise, inquisitiveness, wet feet, and many more.

From the book Goops and How to Be Them. Table Manners—I 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! Table Manners—II The Goops are gluttonous and rude, They gug and gumble with their food; They throw their crumbs upon the floor, And at dessert they tease for more; They will not eat their soup and bread But like to gobble sweets, instead, And this is why I oft decline, When I am asked to stay and dine!
