The Arrogance of Wealth

 

The Arrogance of Wealth

 

By Elton Camp

 

“Dowager Countess” you must call me

Any familiarity and evil will befall ye

 

I am a very wealthy aristocrat

I am sure you are jealous of that

 

I hold a most lofty station in life

Free from mundane tasks or strife

 

When I speak, all present must heed

Servants fulfill my smallest need

 

Not the least disrespect will I allow

In my presence you are to kowtow

 

My superior kind of people are few

I have little use for the likes of you

 

English people I can barely tolerate

But Americans I most intensely hate

 

King, queen, duke or earl I entertain

A lowly baron outside must remain

 

If you do not go along with tradition

Then I shall assign you to perdition

 

Over Downton I once did preside

My son still there does reside

 

So always remember just who I am

Respectfully address me as “Ma’am”
