’Reikie, 2000’

For Dunbar it was the mirry toun.

Fergusson cried it a canty hole And like a keek o glore and heaven forby.

Here Hume transformed human thocht And gave bien denners tae his freens.

Clerk Maxwell as a bairn at schule Screivit a paper for the Royal Society.

For thae that hae the lugs tae hear, Thae splores, high jinks, high thochts Still echo roon closes, wynds, Howfs an New Toun drawing rooms.

In oor ain time Garioch and Smith Were gey sib to Fergusson himsell.

The sheer beauty o the place still lifts the hert, A beauty which some hae done their best tae hash.

For there’s muckle to garr ye grue

In Auld Reikie and in aw Scotland thae days:

Puirtith, ignorance and hopelessness, Shoddy biggins, ill health, early daith, Amang the warst in Europe, tae oor shame.
