Poems by Bob Beveridge
What makes a Scot?


Rain, sun and peat      
or
Heather, hills and moors
or
Lochs, castles and glens,
or is it
Shipyards, Iron works, and engineering
 
Jute, jam and journalism
or
Beer, whisky and tartan
or
Fish, chips and ginger (1) 
or maybe
Haggis, neaps n' tatties
 
Pubs, clubs and dancing
or
Rangers and Celtic
or
Bovril, pies and crips
or could it be
Tammy's, scarves and banners
 
A sail to Rothsey
or
A trip to the Trossachs
or perhaps its
Burntisland for the shows (2)
 
Or is it jist whit's in oor hearts
 
(1.  'ginger'-------Irn Bru  a soft drink)
(2.  'shows'-------Fun fair/Carnival)
