Such Gentility

A good time was had
by all.
From the Elizabethan Club,
there were watercress sandwiches 
and iced tea laced with mint.
Of course,
I failed to mention the grain alcohol,
turning us all into the collective ass 
of a horse.
My headmaster from school
lounged by the waterfall
and said,
'This tea is grand.  It's simply grand!'
But it was far beyond his realm,
and soon, 
he was deep in his cups
dredging his own despair.
that he admitted to being
in love with me,
but I was marrying
his son.
