Proper To the Occasion

The Owl and the Pussycat

Were quite eagerly awaiting

The upcoming Tea Party.

‘Of course you have a nice blue suit’

Said the Owl.

‘Mine are all grey,’ said the Pussycat.

‘That will never do,’ said the Owl.

‘Gentlemen always wear blue

To formal and proper occcasions.

Only a cad would wear grey,

Except for casual occasions.

It’s in all the proper etiquette books.

Life is like that.

Every function and circumstance

Has its proper protocol.

As Jovial turns to Formal,

So grey turns to blue.

One must always learn the distinction

Between Tu.. and Usted, Vous, or Lei.
