THE SECRET WEAPON ©

Tom Barker
Joondalup, Australia
2004

Yin braw Highlander sat next ti oor Queen,
and soon at the camera began ti preen.
But the camera man gid the camera a wee jiggle,
as he glegged the cool tool that wiz used ti wiggle.

Photographer took picture while it did bide,
cos it looked like it was boring doon ti hide.
Inti the wood on which the bloke sat,
while the Queen smiled an' looked complacent en at!

But the damage was done or so it would seem,
and the picture becam sic a hilarious scream.
There's nae wonder the Highlanders walk wi' a lilt,
wi' a pendulum like Big Ben tick tockin' under the kilt.
