Burn’s Night

Rabbie Burns Night – Poems

Each patrol had 6 random words and they had to make a poem using the words, here’s the result!


Lion

6 random words: Burns; Leader; Water; Haggis; Rain; & Sun

Oh Rabbie Burns was in his house writing poems & eating haggis

Oh Rabbie Burns was in his house eating dinner with his housewife Gladys

Oh Rabbie Burns was in his house because outside had rain

Oh Rabbie Burns was in his house & his bairns were a pain

Oh Rabbie Burns was in his house because they had no sun

Oh Rabbie Burns was in his house writing poems ‘cause it’s fun

Oh Rabbie Burns was in his house drinking lots of water

Oh Rabbie Burns was in his house writing poems about being slaughtered

Oh Rabbie Burns left his house to be a Scout Leader

Oh Rabbie Burns was in the hall and met a friend called Peter


Cobra

6 random words: wind; Neeps; Burns; Biscuit; Cottage; & Water

Burns ate a cottage pie

And began to cry

As tears ran like water in the wind

The cottage pie was soon to be binned

Out the fridge came the neeps

All they wanted was a little peep

On the table lay a cradle full of biscuits

The neeps said “is it worth it, should we risk it?”


Eagle

6 random words: Scotland; Rabbie; Neeps; Scouts; Castle; & Auchengillan

A time ago in Scotland, Rabbie was feelin’ scarfed

He scoffed neeps n cheeps

 in the Castle of Auchengillan’s streets

 ‘til his stomach was bloated and full

The Scouts cut him aff

And pulled him off his calf

Leaving him cold and bare

Awoke later he did feelin like a twit

Missing his wallet & keys

So away he went back to his house to repent

 for his rampage of food and drink

Bless the Lord


Hawk

6 random words: Snow; Rabbie; Bard; Tatties; Shortbread; & Scout

Let’s go in the snow

Where we’ll scout about

Rabbie is crabby and he’s a bard

 so it might be hard

All the laddies eat tatties

& everyone has lost their head

Because they’ve eaten so much shortbread


Tiger

6 random words: Sun; Rain; Fog; Haggis; Ayr & Castle

I wanted to buy a Sun newspaper and haggis

So I checked the forecast for rain and later fog

But the shop was closed so I had to go to Ayr to the Castle shop

On the way home I saw the National Scottish animal, the Unicorn

So I took it home and kept it in my toilet

I fed it shortbread then I passed out from the whisky that was made in Scotland


A good effort from our patrols! Well done!
