Theme: Scandal

The School for Scandal

Oh dear, what can the matter be?
Of all people he
Who loved her dearly
And braved the wrath of his parents
Depended solely on his friends
To get married
But now in a manner so hurried
He separates from her.
Oh dear,
What will become of our respectable society
If people do such things with impunity.
Thus said Mr. Y to Mr. X
Which did not Mr. X perplex
He seems
Quite accustomed to this.
In surprise
He didn't his eyebrows raise
But to Mr. Y he confided this:
You know Mr. A
The other day
He was telling Mr. B
His next-door neighbor C
Who got not only a garden of tea
But also a huge dowry
Saw his neighbor D
To insert his key
Into the keyhole of E.
To this Mr. Y said, he
Has heard that an orgy
Is held there daily
By A, B, C, D and E.

Ourselves let us not vex
With what A or B or C or D or E says
About Mr. Y or Mr. X
For respectable are these folks
And respectable is the place.
