Robert Burns Down Under ©

Ian McCrae
Sydney, Australia
2005

I wonder what Burns would think,
An Aussie with a Scottish accent
Reciting, To A Haggis
Accolades to Burns accepted.

Robert Burns. what a man.
Born in Scotland, loved the land.
Excelled in writing poetry and song
Hence the poetry all in slang.

On New Year's eve, the bells will chime
As exiled Scots sing Auld Lang Syne,
Scotlandís voice will never die
Robert Burns. Our battle cry.

What would he think?
Computers, Jetliners and the like,
And still the best-laid plans of Mice aní Men.
For thee and me, all things were right.
