Good Morning from Scotland

Good Morning from Scotland

Time for bed I suppose stupid o’clock and here I am trying tae decipher some poems……If you want tae listen to it all the video is read by the auhor, loads of references to famous Scots in this especially Burns, note to self lie back chill out and listen to the whole poem, at almost 2 hours it is an epic, ah think I wiz born too soon, I sat where he and many of his contemparies sat in Milnes Bar before they turned into just another pub, night all.

    A Scottish poet maun assume
    The burdent o’ his people’s doom
    And dee to brak’ their livin’ tomb.

    Mony ha’e tried, but a’ ha’e failed.
    Their sacrifice has nocht availed
    Upon the thistle they’re impailed.

     Hugh MacDiarmid     From A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle, 1926

Anonymous asked: How do you feel about Groundskeeper Willie on the Simpsons?

I’m not a big fan of The Simpsons, I don’t dislike it, just prefer other things so am pretty indifferent.

You know you’re Scottish when…
