The Horny Golloch

Having the guisers round this evening reminded me of the party piece I used to recite when I was going round chapping on doors with a poke for snashters:

The horny golloch is an awesome craitur
Souple and scaly
He has twa horns and a hantle o feet
And a forkie tailie


The earwig

The earwig is an awesome creature
Supple and scaly
He has two horns and lots of feet
And a forked tail.
