Oh Blawbag was a Bawbag
Although it huffed a mighty blow
Like a Westminster politician
Full of noise, but not much more
It came breezing into Scotland
With no courtesy or name
Intent on causing havoc
disruption was its game

When they get a wee bit water doon in England
It makes the national news
24hour coverage,asking every experts views
A foot of snaws a tragedy
as if they’d never seen the likes
But up here, up in Scotland
We’re in our semmits flying kites.

The night afore the storm came
The Met issued a Red Alert
It’s going to get a wee bit windy
You might even get slightly wet
Plans were made to shut the schools
while on transport please take care
and if your driving on the roads
beware of low flying garden chairs

Now out there in America
they give hurricanes fancy names
like Harriet or Veronica
So for fun we’d do the same
But what were we to call it?
Our best minds racked their brains
While the storm came ever closer
With no transport minister to blame!

Hurricane Mary Doll was mentioned
Hurricane Buckfast was another one
The ideas kept on coming
The amusement of Scots fun
Meanwhile the Storm was raging
To be treated in such way
A blaw of a 160 miles per hour
On the Cairn Gorm they say

Hurricane you’ve had yer tea
Is it no past time you went?
A bit like a Labour politician
In the Scottish parliament
But as It kept on raging
The Scots they only sneered
C’mon and Blaw if ye think yer hard enough
a puff like you wont make us feart!
There’s mair wind in all oor bagpipes
You’ve no enough blaw tae fill the bag
And as the mockery tipped the Richter scale
The World learned the Word Bawbag!

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod
