Kaleidoscope: Wester Hailes poetry


Welcome to Kaleidoscope your source for arts and entertainments created in Wester Hailes by local people!

Here is a selection of short poetry from a local resident


I’m no in the Loop
I’m in the Soup
In fact I’m in the Gloop.


Will I catch Ebola fae BOOLS?
Naw, a wee spider might run up yir breeks
Or a midgey bite yir ear.

Solo Moon

A man called SOLOMON
played Solitaire by the licht o’ the solo moon
but he lost all his sovereigns
playing pinochle with himself alone
so he’s baled oot and went home alone.
