A buddy ca’d Sue

Hae been scrieven aboot a do, or two

An the day’s the day

She’ll hae her say!

Oh whit a Gray day for some,

Either yon fakes sittin oan thir bum,

Yon yins that turn liquid gold tae scum,

Or ye wie a franchise tae protect

Micht see the hale clamjamfry wrecked.

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

It will be hoat oer Westminster

But cloudy elsewhere

Till yon creepin deceptive har

Is pit back in its jar,

Ready for the next balloon

Tae laugh oot loud, and tak us aw tae toun!

Nae Reston fir the wicked now

The train stops there, and how –

If the new timetable does allow.

PM says “nowt aff the table”

As sure as he is able

Tae procure relief,

Spake in words fae a forked tongue

Through laughin teeth.

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

A cannae mak heid nor tail

An ma weather guess is sure tae fail

Should A gan oan watching the BBC,

Ma forecast micht be aw at sea.

So it’s back tae ma Grandpa’s barometer

Which things oan the livinroom wa

The yin he won at the boolin

In nineteen fifty twa.

Museums of Scotland celebrate

Wie somethin ye love,

Or somethin ye hate

But tae find oot ye’ll hae tae wait.

PM and Sue Gray meet oan the quiet,

Wonder whit that’s aboot?

Maybe thir diet?

Wine, canapes –

Or beer perhaps?

AddNibs Weather WARNING

A high o 14Β° degrees

Will no exactly hae ye oan yer knees.

A low o 11Β°

But dinnae despair,

If ye fancy a late nicht oot

Ye’ll no git the train, withoot a doobt

Nae worries there though,

The Charmer’s blawin her flute.🐍

Rather keek it fae thir howff.

An by three the day in this fair toun

Ye better watch ye dinnae droon.

Bogie Betty dis her round

Wie slippers only an inch fae the ground,

A wary an a scary tale

Aw the wie fae Carbisdale.

Third time lucky

An the Cooncellor prood

Effect an innings that aw will remember

Even though it will end by September.πŸ˜₯

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

At last the Orb goes wa tae wa,

Na cloods, nae wind, nae rain at aw!😊

Swinger dis 36 hoors in ain go,

Fairly pittin oan a show

Whilst bairns waitin oan thir shot,

Think the hale thing toffee rot.

Borders Cooncil tae fix thir highways,

Repair the tar oan aw the byways,

“Withoot pitfalls or potholes”,

A thing cyclists cannae thole!

Bit whit aboot the Borders bairns?

Fir years they thoucht folk wirnae carin

When thir trikes cam asunder

Oan the Borders fancy hunder!

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

No a bad day the day,

Though the cloods hanae gain away

An neither his manky May.

But dis Manky May soond like a sang?

Weel ma guitar string jist went twang!

Greedy angel taks its share,

Leavin Glenfarclas cupboard bare

PM admits surprise

That Brexit has him up tae his eyes

In Irish muck an glaur

Bet he wishes that wis oer.

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

Shrouds o clouds and gentle breeze

Will hae ye oan yer knees

Prayin fir a glimpse o sun

Slapping suncream by the ton

But dinnae hud yer breathin,

Or ye’ll just end up seethin

An still sittin freezin.

AddNib 66

Easy gien bonus

Cause it pits the onus

Whae mair an mair prefer the bru.

He’s nae fool

Keeps his cool

Haen 16 simmits

Seems he has nae limits.

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

Ne’re cast a cloot,

Or yer wellies ya big galoot,

Fir the East will keek like West

Sae dinnae gan oot in yer vest

Working far hame micht be best

Unless yer a servant civil

Whae’s use tae lots o drivvel.

AddNib 65 11th May

Some say West is best
But A go wie the rest
Next time A will refuse
Tae live in a constant deluge
Even the news
Is hardly worth much
Except yon meal last night,
Thank God A’m goin Dutch.
Sae the bulletins will hae tae be cut
An the newsroom firmly shut
Till yer man can get back tae the East
An present ye wie anither great feast
O news in brief
Maistly fae Leif.

Andy’s Munro’s oan the go

Fir a $195 million she puts oan a show

Fuel poverty strikes the lowest paid

That’s a surprise the Chancerlor said

Didn’t know that at all

Perhaps they’ll not get to the ball,

In aid of the funds for that Warhol?

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

Wa tae wa showers

Disguise aw the flowers

That we ca oers

It’s just a well the thistle

Can blew it’s ain whistle!
