Knight of the Heart (knightsheart)

Poetry, Short stories, Blog, Titan

Tam Mishanter rides
Well drunk from the public house
Devil’s pipes call him

Devil’s pipes call him
Alloway Kirk night delights
Short skirt Nannie lust

Short skirt Nannie lust
Tam’s joyful cry is cut short
Hell chases him full pace

Hell chases him full pace
Nannie, her razor claws, reach
Tam’s blue bonnet flys

Tam’s blue bonnet flys
Blinded claws take the mare’s tail
Over River Doon

Over River Doon
Better a mare’s tail than Tam
Tam Mishanter rides
