On Commissary Goldie's Brains

by Robert Burns

Lord, to account who dares thee call,
or e'er dispute thy pleasure?
Else why, within so thick a wall,
enclose so poor a treasure?

It was a great night for haggis, and I thoroughly enjoyed Robert Burns Day in Vancouver, Canada as well.  A very happy Robert Burns Day to you all in Scotland.

I'll have to celebrate next year. When I was a senior in high school, my English class had Robert Burns day, and we listened to recordings of his songs that someone had set to music and ate shortbread. I had forgotten about that until now, but it was fun. What's haggis anyway? Or do I not want to know?

It's a reclusive creature with two short left legs used for running quickly round hilltops. Once the glens were filled with grazing herds but then the railways came...

How ghastly! Where did you get that picture of a haggis in its death throes?
