The Haggis

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!"
