Good With Some Unsettling Aspects (Poetry Form 53: Roundelay)

Schools with good behaviour but no spirit in the kids freak me out.

Here’s a roundelay or rondelet, which are apparently the same thing even though a rondel and a roundel are different.

Too well behaved,
The children walk upon the right
Too well behaved.
Not violent or at all depraved
But always quiet and polite.
Why don’t they laugh, or swear, or fight?
Too well behaved.
