An Edinburgh Invitation

You’re new, and seem pleasant, so please come for supper-
You’ve passed the first ‘suitable’ test,
You look right, you sound right, we’re all middle upper,
And play our cards close to our chest.

Two questions, it’s simple, you’re part of the set,
Which old school, and where do you live?
We’d like you to join us, you’re charming, and yet
It depends on the answers you give.

Postcodal selection will give us protection
From those that may seem a bit rough.
We are careful to whom we are granting election,
EH3 on it’s own’s not enough.
