Poetry Map of Scotland, poem no. 156: The Bishop's House, Iona

Redpoll

Oi cheeky chops
are ye lookin at me pal
wi yer wee reid bunnet
perched upon yer heid?

Is it Aberdeen ye follae
wi thon scarlet
ready tae nut anybiddy
that crosses yer patch?

Haud yer wheesht, awa wi ye
sing yer twisk twiddly dee
on anither tree, awa frae
yon bishop's hoose.
