SCOT BLOTS: A PIECE OF DOGGEREL ON OUR SORRY PLIGHT

SCOT BLOTS

"The best laid plans of mice and men go oft awry",
Your noble countryman Mr Burns said that - now you should try,
To speak sincerely - indeed own up,
To cruel blunders which we now sup...
Us prudent savers with
Old Derbyshire - low returns, high tax,
But safe for sure, grey heads could now relax?
Alas we reckoned not with Brown,
He and his henchman made us frown,
He and Darling of little faith
They did the deed upon the eighth;
They froze our savings, left us to shiver,
Took tax AND capital, my muse does quiver.
They had the golden eggs; they were paid well,
But took the goose that laid them – 'tis truth I tell.
Old Rabbie always had it true.
"The Deil took the Exciseman..."

As he will you.
