A tribute to Haggis

Tonight is The Bard of Ayrshire’s night

(Robert Burns 25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796)


‘Tis Burns night lest you didnae ken

and all around the isles

folk are eating Haggis

and most of them have piles!


It hardly is surprising

for what they stuff within

then serve with neeps and tatties

and share with all their kin


It’s “tak a dram afore ye go”

and blether all night long

then pipes and drums and dance with swords

inevitably a song


Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it

Haggis aint so bad

It’s just I look so awful

when fully dressed in plaid!

The 1000 words a day challenge

Debbie is relatively new to the blogosphere but has already had success in writing a script for a small budget film, produced in Derby. You can read about this here:


I particularly enjoyed her short story about making soup with produce from an allotment. See it here:

I think Debbie is very talented. See what you think!
