The Horny Gollach's Pairty     by: Blackhall, Sheena

Daddylanglegs, flees, flechs , minnie-mony-feet
Emerteens an wyvers fechtin fur a seat
Foggy bummers, butteries, ettercaps an slugs
Snailies, slaters, a heeze o ither bugs
Pairtyin wi midgies wi a forkietail as cook...
At the hornygollach's pairty ye cud either sting or sook.
