Said Jock to Jean: "Whit did ye do
Wi' yon wee haggis, plump an' grey,
I carried home for me and you
To cheer our hearts on Hogmanay?"
Said Jean to Jock: "I didna' ken
It was a haggis - In ma doot
I gazed an ' gazed at it, and then
I took the tongs an' threw it oot.
"Ye shoulda' telt me. When you bought
It in the cat came at the run,
An' sniffed at it - I think she thought
'Twas something naughty she had doen.
"Poor Puss! Wi' shame she looked at me,
An' did the best that she was able
To cover it . . . Jist look how she
Scratched a' the varnish aff the table!"
