Challenging, deep and meaningful poetry in the style of the Broons. Glossary Included

Seek Hoose

The wean’s a wee bit wabbit,
Jimmy’s goat the skits;
Granny’s goan aw crabbit
Check oot Samantha’s zits!
Stuart’s peely-wally,
Hingy, seek – no smile;
Grandpaw’s lost his wallies
An’ Jimmy’s keech is vile.
They say the dry boak’s no’ much fun:
Maw’s goan and goat the wet,
An’ worse! The bog roll’s noo aw done:
We’re using the gazette.
We’ve tried aw roads tae fin’ a cure,
The doactor’s in a sweat;
Of whit tae dae he’s no quite sure:
We’re bidin’ oan the vet!
