Indulge me Scottish style!


Blog Posted:4/2/2011 12:04:00 AM

1 original, poem on the theme of SCOTLAND!!
Any form is acceptable.

Write a poem about Scottish slang, history, legend, landscape, stereotypes, bagpipes, or men who wear nothing under their kilts!  I don't really care as long as the theme is something Scottish!  (It doesn't have to be written in broad Scots dialect, but I will certainly be impressed if it is!)

Use google to search for subject matter if you have to, you'll find some crazy stuff!

I have written several poems on this theme so feel free to check them out!

*The fall of Macbeth

*Merry Queen of Squash

*Kelpie

*Sawney Bean, legend of a cannibal

*Away off the river shore

*Dunnotar

*Massacre at Glencoe


Have fun and be creative.  Spelling and grammar count.


*SQUEEEEEAAAAALLLLL!!!!*
