Unbroken Rules

I’ll bet that you will never see
A follower of rules like me.

While others speed as lights turn red,
I’ll brake and sit and wait instead.

I will not sample grape or gummy;
Only paid food hits my tummy.

Never will I cut a line;
Like all wusses, I’ve no spine.

Chutzpah is a trait I lack;
Nervousness is more my knack.

Rules are made for fools like me,
A modern-day anomaly.

    '...a modern day anomaly,' I'm with you, my dear! Though there are regrettably so many for whom rules were made to be broken. Lovely couplet construction, rhythm and rhyme. Well done, as always, Keith

    Your doing just fine staying in line. Where it is nice and safe. Let the swine be rude and crude thinking your a waif. From one fool to another. Peace. :)
