Thaur was an auld fellow named Rabbie/
His poetry was unco grabby/
His verses sae sweet/
Wi’ rhyming sae neat/
An scansion ye cannae call flabby.
(This Burns night limerick was prompted by the excellent stream of Burns-inspired twitter poetry coming from @robertflorence’s twitter feed, using the hashtag #RabRabbie. Apologies in advance for my feeble command of Scottish).
