To learn a listen

Take a listen. Listen has already been nouned, so it’s not much of a stretch to learn a valuable one.

maybe you taught him a listen that how he acted was more than wrong and he grew a brain.

Gara Yaka once got caught in springy sapling fixed with piano wire. Author caught the butcher and taught them a listen.

Likkle sweat never kill nobody yet
From me likkle an’ a grow, mama taught me a listen
Hold the faith, don’t give up, just press on
