Absurd, Ridiculous and Arrogant

Absurd, Ridiculous and Arrogant

Ridiculous aristocrats.

                Ridiculous hierarchy.

Ridiculous royalty.

                Same old malarkey.

Absurd etiquette.

                Absurd dress.

Absurd manners.

                Nothing less.

Ruling the country.

                Ruling the land.

Ruling over us. 

                Ain’t life grand?

Truly arrogant.

                Truly superior.

Truly toffee-nosed.

                Totally peculiar.

Effete elite,

                Fay fobs,

Fancy dandies,

                Tarnished knobs.
