On Commissary Goldie's Brains

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Lord, to account who does Thee call,
Or e'er dispute Thy pleasure?
Else why within so thick a wall
Enclose so poor a treasure?

 

Lord, to account who do You call,
Or ever dispute Your pleasure?
Else why within so thick a wall
Enclose so poor a treasure?
