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.
