OOR RABBIE !


~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

SCOTLAND .

Home of the tartan army
Land of the square sausage
Where a carry out has nothing to do with food
Not "going shopping" but "doing the messages"
Where the rest of the world comes to party
Being too proud to run for the bus
Where umbrellas go to die
Hearing the Hampden roar
Where a winch isn't a piece of machinery
Home of the banter
Shaggy cows needing haircuts
Suns oot, taps aff
£10 notes you can't spend anywhere else
Going out in the randan
Where corned beef is a skin tone
Strangers one minute, best pals the next
Where "how" means "why"
We have empties not parties
Where we put salt in our porridge
Cheering when we cross the border
Hunners of midges
The only country made more beautiful by rain...




Cheers,  Kate xxx.

Kate, love the poem - can I share it with my fellow volunteers at Glasgow 2014 ? Just sums up Glasgow!!

To be honest I can't remember where I found it - I know it was some time ago. It definitely seems to conjure up Glasgow and Scotland ...

I wouldn't have thought it being spread about all sorts of visitors to Glasgow and abroad would be against the idea of the person who had originally penned it - would you ???
