Standards Must Be Maintained

 

Standards Must Be Maintained

 

By Elton Camp

 

Many unworthy persons at Downton Abbey reside

Including insufferable snobs who are hard to abide

The earl can’t manage to keep the finances afloat

His countess, on an aristocratic title does dote

 

Lady Mary seems to bring the kiss of death to men

Which suitor would ever dare be around her again

An engagement to marry she rules a mistake

If some other prospect her libido does shake

 

Some, who to becomes her lovers have tried

In some horrible way we learn they have died

The younger daughters, spinsters will remain

So the estate new descendents cannot gain

 

“Crawley” is a name that describes them well

What the family is really like it seems to tell

The servants seem a bit better sort to me

Yet, many faults in them there are to see

 

Thomas can’t seem to keep his hands off men

Although it brings him trouble again & again

Bransom didn’t stick to driving of the car

Marrying a Crawley went lots too far

 

O’Brien is always plotting up some scheme

So she is seldom the person she does seem

Of the valets, cooks, maids and footmen

On them there is little need to begin

 

Carson is the only one at Downton who’s true

Who works hard and tells others what to do

Aristocratic standards he’ll always maintain

And from unseemly conduct is sure to refrain
