...will join a mother’s tender cares,
 Thro’ future times to make his virtues last;
That distant years may boast of other Blairs!”—
 She said, and vanish’d with the sweeping blast.

by Burns, Robert
...NAE heathen name shall I prefix,
 Frae Pindus or Parnassus;
Auld Reekie dings them a’ to sticks,
 For rhyme-inspiring lasses.


Jove’s tunefu’ dochters three times three
 Made Homer deep their debtor;
But, gien the body half an e’e,
 Nine Ferriers wad done better!

...ere will be Logan M’Dowall,
 Sculdudd’ry an’ he will be there,
And also the Wild Scot o’ Galloway,
 Sogering, gunpowder Blair.
But we winna mention Redcastle,
 The body, e’en let him escape!
He’d venture the gallows for siller,
 An ’twere na the cost o’ the rape.


But where is the Doggerbank hero,
 That made “Hogan Mogan” to skulk?
Poor Keith’s gane to hell to be fuel,

On the moor? Suburban excesses spread like the sores

Of syphilis and more regulations in a decade of Blair

     They rise, the bannered towers of Doune,
     They sink in distant woodland soon;
     Blair-Drummond sees the hoofs strike fire,
     They sweep like breeze through Ochtertyre;
     They mark just glance and disappear

     Dark Forth! amid thy sluggish tides,
     And on the opposing shore take ground
     With plash, with scramble, and with bound.

...hey should have asked my ‘usband, he’d have told’em then and there.
His thoughts on immigration, teenage mothers, Tony Blair,
The future of the monarchy, house prices in the south
The wait for hip replacements, BSE and foot and mouth.

Yes . . . they should have asked my husband he can sort out any mess
He can rejuvenate the railways he can cure the NHS
So any little niggle, anything you want to know
Just run it past my husband, wind him up and let him go.
