Margaret, the Adroit, weeps
Over the slaughtered Walrus King
and pays homage by spellbinding
they put to sea, but flounder
to rest for centuries
on Camas Uig beach
A cow finds them
Carved in Norway or Iceland?
British Museum v. Museum of Scotland?
Struggle won by the “Museum of the World”
and lent back to a defeated nation
as “Ambassadors of Scotland”
In a foostie drawer in an Edinburgh home
Beserker is found, wild eyed, biting his shield,
bought for a quid,
sold for a million
sleekit and deceitful
he conceals Check,
threatens a Kingdom
by lying to a Queen
