Wishing all of our Scottish soldiers a very happy Burns night! Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,Great Chieftain o’ the Puddin-race!Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,Painch, tripe, or thairm:Weel are ye wordy of a graceAs lang ‘s my arm.The groaning trencher there ye fill,Your hurdies like a distant hill,Your pin wad help to mend a millIn time o’ need,While thro’ your pores the dews distilLike amber bead.His knife see Rustic-labour dight,An’ cut ye up wi’ ready slight,Trenching your gushing entrails bright,Like onie ditch;And then, O what a glorious sight,Warm-reekin, rich!Then, horn for horn, they stretch an’ strive:Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive,Till a’ their weel-swall’d kytes belyveAre bent like drums;Then auld Guidman, maist like to rive,Bethankit hums.Is there that owre his French ragout,Or olio that wad staw a sow,Or fricassee wad mak her spewWi’ perfect sconner,Looks down wi’ sneering, scornfu’ viewOn sic a dinner?Poor devil! see him owre his trash,As feckless as a wither’d rash,His spindle shank a guid whip-lash,His nieve a nit;Thro’ bluidy flood or field to dash,O how unfit!But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,The trembling earth resounds his tread,Clap in his walie nieve a blade,He’ll make it whissle;An’ legs, an’ arms, an’ heads will sned,Like taps o’ thrissle.Ye Pow’rs wha mak mankind your care,And dish them out their bill o’ fare,Auld Scotland wants nae skinking wareThat jaups in luggies;But, if ye wish her gratefu’ prayer,Gie her a Haggis!#wearetherlc #britisharmylogistics #wesustain #burnsnight ...
