Quiche Will Be Served, and Poverty Will Be Discussed

QUICHE WILL BE SERVED, AND POVERTY WILL BE DISCUSSED

Have you seen the wealthy liberals eating quiche lorraine
They’re so dainty and urbane
Yes they Summer in the plain
And they dance in Spanish rain

They adore the poor they do
And the famine that’s their due
They fight bosses by the slew
And shop on finest avenue

With degrees, grace and aplomb
They pounce on a dire slum
Tell the poor that they’re too glum
While clutching Mommy’s tidy sum

Their Theatre’s Masterpiece
And the last century’s cease
Gilded gowns and Christmas geese
Gives them everlasting peace

For when they contemplate the old
Wretched London dark and cold
Portentous poverty and gold
They have a cause, my dear, to hold
