40. Reply to an Announcement by J. Rankine

 I AM a keeper of the law
In some sma’ points, altho’ not a’;
Some people tell me gin I fa’,
 Ae way or ither,
The breaking of ae point, tho’ sma’,
 Breaks a’ thegither.
I hae been in for’t ance or twice, And winna say o’er far for thrice; Yet never met wi’ that surprise That broke my rest; But now a rumour’s like to rise— A whaup’s i’ the nest!
