Elphinstone Kist   Bairn Rhyme, Work

Scaffie     by: Blackhall, Sheena

Teem the rubbish in the bin
Bottle, box an can
Here comes the scaffie wi the scaffie's van
Watch him cowp the wheelie
Rubbish fur the tip!
Watch him lift the rubbish fae the builder's skip!
If there wisna scaffies
Fit wid there be?
Miles an miles o middens
As far as gulls can flee!
