Downton

If you like Brits, including upper class twits
Then you can always watch Downton.
Who’ll Mary marry? And will Tom go or tarry?
Just be sure to watch Downton.
So Edith got her child back from the family of the herder.
And one Bates or another surely will stand trial for murder.
What do you know?
There’s much behind closed doors.
That’s where the action is brewing on all of the floors.
So watch Downton.
Thomas may be alright. Downton.
Carson and Hughes are tight. Downton.
That’s how your Sunday night goes.

Late in the season everybody’s got reasons
They might stay or leave Downton.
Julian Fellowes writes both farewells and hellos
In the plots he weaves. Downton.
Like one bloke who supposedly survived from the “Titanic.”
Or Edith’s beau whom now we know was offed by thugs Germanic.
Strange ways to go.
The lives are much shorter there.
Between the wars and disasters, there’s death in the air.
Beware Downton.
All turns to crisis fast. Downton.
Even poor Isis passed. Downton.
Granny will have the last laugh.
