For William Nicol

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

Ye maggots, feed on Nicol's brain,
For few sic feasts you've gotten;
And fix your claws in Nicol's heart,
For deil a bit o't's rotten.

You maggots, feed on Nicol's brain,
For few such feasts you have gotten;
And fix your claws in Nicol's heart,
For devil a bit of it is rotten.
