A WEE TALE O' SCOTLAND (Memorial to the Departed)

a poem by William Willis, Scotland



A WEE TALE O' SCOTLAND, LAND O' THE BAGPIPES AND KILT.
AND THE VOLCANIC ROCK, WHERE OUR CASTLE WAS BUILT.
RED HAIR AND FRECKLES AND TOSSIN' THE CABER.
SINGLE MALT WHISKEY, WITH A DISTINCTIVE FAVOUR.

COME VISIT LOCH NESS, OUR NESSIE'S A MYSTERY.
GET A PICTURE OF HER AND YOU'LL GO DOWN IN HISTORY.
BEN NEVIS IS HERE IF YOU FANCY A HIKE.
OR GLASGOW IS NEAR IF YOU FANCY A FIGHT.

COME SEE OUR BATTLEFIELDS, WAY UP IN GLENCOE.
OUR VALLEY OF MURDERS, USUALLY COVERED IN SNOW.
ST.ANDREWS LINKS GOLF, WORLD'S No1 COURSE.
TRY HITTIN' THE BALL WHEN IT'S BLOWING GALEFORCE.

TAKE A TRIP DOON TAE AYRSHIRE, THE HOME OF OUR BARD.
BUT REMEMBER TAM O'SHANTER, BETTER BE ON YOUR GUARD.
HEROES LIKE SUBO,SEAN CONNERY WHO'RE FAMOUS.
AND THOES SPECKY TWINS WE CALL THE PROCLAIMERS.

AN OLD FIRM MATCH,WATCH THE CELTIC PLAY RANGERS.
BUT GLASGOW'S EAST END'S NO A PLACE FOR YOU STRANGERS.
THE WEATHER IS COLD,NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED.
SO WRAP UP WARM OR YOU'LL BE DEPARTED.
