Shame on Ye

Written for the guestbook of Lainey aka Yankgirl.

---

Well a week and a day have we endured
Yet no man or beast has found the will
To festoon this public sounding board
With praise or blame or bleatings shrill!

Shame on ye! All of ye!

Though dozens of ye are already blooded
With message postings here sent forth,
None have yet answered the ramblings flooded
From the pen of yon Hamish of the North!

Shame on ye! All of ye!

Loose the repartee of scholar's tongue!
Let cynically incisive barbs be free!
Bring out your cliches old or young!
Let them rampage loose in manic glee!

Shame on ye! All of ye!

Yet moi? Elusive and semi-modest toad,
I accept no honour or heartfelt thanks
For treading this winding weary road
To once more desecrate this place of Yank's.
