Glasgow Kiss

Lo! what hast thou done, prey what is this?
Mine eyes do see but believe it not
You greet me with a Glasgow kiss
My blood flows swift and does not clot
But doest spill in floods o’or floor
Forsooth methinks you have forgot
The way to treat the devils whore
God’s teeth thou knowest not the plot.

My life’ s blood you must restore               
Thou leavest me with a damned spot
Which fast grows dark and runs with gore
S’wounds thou doth protest a lot

a Glasgow kiss is slang for a head butt
a gory story for the rocking renaissance contest

    Maggie, I’m going to put you as one of my favorite poets. So far, I have enjoyed reading your poems. Surprisingly, to myself, I have become particularly fond of history related poems. I think it is because I almost hated history until in school until I studied art history. Then, the past became alive for me. Now, I find it rejuvenated again, through poetry's medium. Thank you. This poem flows beautifully and kept my attention throughout. Lovingly, Dane
