Walter K. Belt PRE-1940
You may have a skillful Master
Who presides with practiced ease,
Who arranges clever programs
That will entertain and please,
One who calls in witty speakers
Who knows his way about
But a lavish Junior Warden
Is the boy who brings them out!
You may have a good degree team
Where each member knows his part.
Drilled to function as a unit
With especial skill and art,
With the finest of equipment,
Jewelled crown and sumptuous shroud
But a groaning banquet table
Is the bait that draws the crowd!
Did I say I was different?
If the truth must be confessed,
Much as I like work and speeches,
I'm as hungry as the rest
And the ones they put in pudding
Are my favorite kind of Plumb
When the cry is Come and get it!
Gangway, slowpokes! Here I come.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
