TO BE AN EPWORTH

In order to become us, one must fully qualify
And pass a test most rigorous (not simply really try)
And always raise the standard till ridiculously high
To be an Epworth

It helps if one is born into the natur’l fam’ly line
‘Tho many have, through marriage, earned their ownership just fine
By holding Epworth principles as though they were Divine
So they’re an Epworth

One mustn’t ever testify that they would rather pass
A stiff libation offered in a bottle or a glass
At eventide or daybreak whether being lad or lass
To stay an Epworth

One always must be quite prepared to help another soul
In need of food or lodging or cigarette to roll
Or to provide a fiver to a buddy in the hole
To pass as Epworth

Political correctness must not ever place a halt
To sharing wit and humor from the massive Epworth Vault
If foreign or trans-gendered - Hey - it’ really ain’t my fault
That I’m an Epworth

And like, or love or hate us, we shall all stick to our guns
For we are the elite - the crème de crème - the chosen ones
And I’m forever thankful that the surname of my sons
Is bloody Epworth

My Christmas wish to Epworth-ville is for ten thousand aeons
Of future conjugality for married Epworth lions
Resulting in the births of countless thousand Epworth scions
Thank God we’re EPWORTH!
