Festive, All

August, August!
The newspaper headline says “Invasion”
But it’s a Burgh p-aper and they spelt it “Welcome”.
What a stupit fucking
mistake.

“Ah hate aw these
foreign cunts
The streets are unbearable, taks me
Five minutes longer ti get ma paper in
The morning- [Be] side

Misty
the shows are shite
And ah can see thum aw on ma telly
Without ony cunts
Standin on ma taes, kin?”

Sink b
My secret skin
l
o
w

For the
festival.
“Shite, eh?”

Home,
only Fife,
seems further

away,

Every year in
August, August!
