Wee sleekit, grubby beastie

poem final cutWell, I’m not sure what Rabbie Burns would’ve made of the invention of the typewriter. I like to think he might have seen it as a Peoples’ Portable Printing Press.

“To a Mouse” by the great Scottish Bard has always been a favourite of mine, and I must apologise for nicking one of his best lines ever, but it was for a good cause! I had my own Scot go over the phrasing, and he suggested the “Howts!” which I like much better than my Too-English “BUT!” that it replaced.
