Cavalcade of Cliché, 37

(A parade of words and phrases eligible for retirement.)

Into the Woulds

The teacher stopped the lesson, then
Just stared awhile at Could,
A disobedient kid who sat
Beside both Would and Should.

“Why did you punch him in the arm?”
She asked. “It isn’tn good!
I've told you, Could, so many times:
You must not knock on Would!”
