There’s a change in the air north of the border…
Scots with their bairns and burns
bagpipes and Bal-moral high ground
Trossocs and Gorbles,
Highlands and borders,
Lochs and tartan socks
Bannocks and butter scotch
Kilted and sporraned.
Hot Toddy and Cock-a-Leekie,
are striving to define their identity.
The Common thistle, a ragged outcast
Lately topped with fiercesome barbs
