From Poems of Love and Loss
For far owre lang the Scots hae bent/ An touched whichever forelock meant/ Position, job or favour lent
The gr’und owre which ancestors focht/ An generations fertile wrocht/ Is noo by speculators bocht/ In City steals,
For this timewise by far the worst/ As, sellin what wis held in trust,/ The votes were bocht an Peers imbursed/ Wi English gowd;
Mair troubles spring,/For James the Sixth wis noo the First/ An England’s King.
