Alex, I am a Redcoat Hanoverian
so I do not wish to inhale
the hallucinatory smoke
o’ yir Jacobite Pipe Dreams.
Nicola, I am an old style communist
So I do not believe in countries or frontiers
only the Common Wealth of Human Kind.
Alex, if you win this raffle
I will eat my itchy Clydesider’s bunnet
with neeps and tatties
seasoned with a good pinch of salt.
Nicola, if you succeed
I don’t think British Embassies abroad
will be sympathetic or helpful
if I lose my Scotch Passport.
