Elphinstone Kist   Doric Verse, Family and Home

The Prodigy     by: Benzie, Lesley

My five year ald son
said: " Mum

''If ye were fallin doon
a big cliff,
whit would ye hiv
at the bottom,
water or rocks."

Ah said ''water''
convinced,
that's the only wye
ah could save mysel.
But he replied,

"Ah'd prefer rocks
cause
ah cannae swim."

And his grin wis
indestructible.
