Scottish Poetry Selection
AviationGang up wi' ye to Lanark?
What for wad I gang there?
Gae tak' your pleesure whaur ye will?
I'm safer in my chair.
Nae doubt 'twill be a bonnie sicht indeed
When legs and arms come whummlin' on your heid!
It's maybe in the Scriptur';
I never saw it there.
I've sat in town and landward kirks
For seeventy year and mair?
But never heard frae ony, deid or leevin',
O' dragons takin' passengers to Heeven.
They tell me that trapeezin'
Was stoppit by the law;
It seems it's naething for a man
To mak' himsel' a craw!
I'm stupit? Ay? I ne'er could see the sense
O' fleein' in the face o' Providence!
