Poem by Robert Burns

To Mr. Mackenzie, Surgeon, Mauchline

Friday firsts the day appointed
By the Right Worshipful anointed,
  	To hold our grand procession;
To get a blad o Johnies morals,
And taste a swatch o Mansons barrels
  	I the way of our profession.

The Master and the Brotherhood
  	Would a be glad to see you;
For me I would be mair than proud
  	To share the mercies wi you.

    		If Death, then, wi skaith, then.
      			Some mortal heart is hechtin,
    		Inform him, and storm him,
      			That Saturday youll fecht him.

Mossgiel, An. M. 5790
