The Vulgar Little Lady Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


But mamma now said Charlotte pray don't you believeA
That I'm better than Jenny my nurseB
Only see my red shoes and the lace on my sleeveA
Her clothes are a thousand times worseB
I ride in my coach and have nothing to doC
And the country folks stare at me soD
And nobody dares to control me but youC
Because I'm a lady you knowD
Then servants are vulgar and I am genteelE
So really 'tis out of the wayF
To think that I should not be better a dealE
Than maids and such people as theyF
Gentility Charlotte her mother repliedG
Belongs to no station or placeH
And there's nothing so vulgar as folly and prideG
Though dress'd in red slippers and laceH
Not all the fine things that fine ladies possessI
Should teach them the poor to despiseJ
For 'tis in good manners and not in good dressI
That the truest gentility liesJ
