MurrayMumbles – Decrying One's Moral Path
I say, sir,
I see your path is high
You make a mongrel of me!
Seems my manners pass me by
How truly sad it is
To be deprived of etiquette's most upper standing
To my attitudes, apparently so very vile
Your ideals are quite demanding!
You see, dear sir,
I lack that certain level demeanor
There stands etiquette, herself vastly divided
As my vulgarity stands between her
It does make things so difficult
In respect to civil talk and chat
But in respect to insolence? Oh, dear chap,
I'm most certainly excellent at that.
