After the last tattoo

Aa da bars ir shut,
aa da publicans sleepin aff
dir mont o champagne brakkfists.

Posters an signs
ir peelin aff
dir plestir fae da nick
o deep cuttin paepir.

Coffee pots an fryin pans
fizz an bubble wi
salves an serums
fir da sair heids o entertainment.

Da brokkin neck
o a perfect bottle
chokk’s höp
intae a reluctant wirld.
