padre shuns the wallowers

"Scatology is not my cup of tea,"
the Padre knocks a sherry back, and adds,
"I even write 'nuemonia' without 'p'
and when I taught Biology forbade
course speculations on how sphinxes shad.
'Marsala es', as the Sicilians say
'su casa', but I hope you'll go away
before you track in 'Pooh'.  Madeira'll do,
please take one too; it's good to counterweigh
the fino.  I think Milne rues the day."
