Posh is a word that is often misused,
Without knowing the meaning, so sorely abused.
It is thought to mean snobbish, and rather stuck up,
That you’re an upper class toff who drinks from a teacup.
It actually means “port out, starboard home”,
For those who possessed a rich chromosome.
On board a liner you paid to have the sun,
And it was port side out on any cruise run,
But coming home, it was on the starboard side,
So you paid to ensure that you could really enjoy the ‘ride’.
So now you know ‘posh’ is a slang word for rich,
Use it to describe those who can afford the very best ‘pitch’!*

*as in pitch a tent (of extremely luxurious proportions, in this case!)
