Charlotte Square

[For Trust House Forte Magazine]

C a 'canny Scots, wi' Wallace fled,
H ence left by Sassenachs for dead,
A re back as Gnomes of Charlotte Square,
R emodelled into banker-wear;
L ulling auld London foes to sleep,
O n haggis, scotch and salmon-leap;
T heir dirks long fashioned into shares,
T o long-term bonds and fiscal wares.
E dinburgh rules, OK! As world-investors,
Scots waha!

S o, all through London's bigger bang,
Q uiet Scots have played it lang,
U nimpressed by southern nancies
A cting out their short-term fancies;
R elishing that long return
E ngland's owed since Bannockburn.
