A ballad and a limerick

Tim Harris is our poet laureate.


Oh, I forbid ye ladies a’

Unless ye hae nae fear,

To come or gae by Starbuck Ha’

For fell Ms Spain works there.

There’s nane that gaes to Starbuck Ha’

But they maun get the pronouns reet,

Gif they ken, or gif they dinna,

Else Ms Spain will greet.

(‘greet’ in Scots means cry or whimper)

But that’s enough.

I think a limerick might be easier

There once was a lady called Spain

Who had rages again and again.

When others misgendered

Pronouns she’d tendered,

She wanted to cause them pain.
