A voice said

Dragged up in back streets

this working class kid made good

in learning and position

I had the job, the money, the status, more money

I was ready

But then a voice said

YOU are not dinner party material!

I cried

then whined:

The further education?

The aspirations?

The witty repartee?

The middle class accent?

The money?

A voice said you are NOT dinner party material!

I presume the voice was the high society princess daughter of the Duke of Lavish Dinner Parties tenth in line to the royal balls that you had on a rusty mini bonnet when both intoxicated on expensive champagne.
