Cute poem. I saw that yesterday before the board was archived.
Only thing.....wasn't gonna mention it, but since this neat poem has reappeared..........
you wouldn't actually FEED haggis to sheep would you? Haggis is made from sheep stomach, stuffed with meat and barley etc. Doesn't seem a fittin' forage for a critter. Kinda like inviting a Gnome to dinner and then serving him sausage made from Gnome guts as casing and stuffed with fairy meat.
Now.....if you were to serve Doc Mary on a spit, turned to a nice crispy brown, the entire Gnome population of the Americas would attend. Forever after, that day would be known in gnomedom as
: 'Tis in Scotia the Sheepies roam,
: Up the hills, they waddle home.
: Across the wide and lonesome field,
: The black and white Sheepies go home for their meal.
: They baaaa when the bad doggies come to attack them.
: The brave Sheepies conquer through all of the mayhem.
: The Sheepies get home to their dear master Angus,
: He gives them their water and their tasty brown haggis.
: The Sheepies have once again triumphed over evil,
: Hail Angus's Sheepies as they bleat and gambol!
