Smart kids think,

Before they react.

Smart kids improve,

In things that they've lacked.

Smart kids say no,

When no should be said.

Smart kids may cry,

When tears should be shed.

Smart kids can tell,

When you've been crying.

Even if you can't tell,

When they've been lying.

Smart kids predict,

Every move you make.

Smart kids take notes,

On every step you take.

Smart kids are careful,

And never simply guess.

Because to a smart kid,

You're just

a game

of chess.
