I smiled when my Burns poem placed 3rd. I can't tell you how curious I was to see how this one would fare in the States.
Thanks to all for the nudges along the way.

Thanks, Tristan and mac, for the nod.

Pleased you enjoyed this one, Tristan. I really enjoyed writing it for all the things it made me think about.
There's something about accent poetry that I find I like. Not everybody's cup of tea, I know, and that's fair enough,
but I find it seems to give the words a new beginning. Good fun, and yet Burns could and can touch your heart.

Best to both
