When in Rome

When in Rome do as the Romans do
means that you must adapt
to customs that feel strange to you.
To others they are apt.

As a guest you show restraint,
observe what your hosts do.
And even if some things seem quaint,
you try to use them, too.

So gradually you may dare
to present your old ways
which they may willingly then share.
Perhaps one of them stays.
