This is an old poem that was never looked at so I've souped it up and renamed it for the CWC comp. It's a shame to waste it, it's far too epic. MUST BE READ ALOUD IN SCOTS ACCENT



As I laid me down to sleep,
I turned when I heard a strange wee beep,
and a window opened in the wall,
and a grey stood there, t'was very small............. ('bout 4ft 6ish)

Well it stepped right through and it floated near
and I quietly gulped and I quelled a tear
And there's something else that I found quite queer,
though his gob stayed shut I could plainly hear...

Don’t fear, said he, we have met before,
last year I popped up through your floor.
Och aye, cried I, so what’s in store?
said he, not THAT....... it’s about your snore.

MY ... SNORE? ... said I, about to freak,
YOU STUCK THAT BB UP MY BEAK?
CAN I HELP IT IF I SNORT AND SQUEAK?
Then he fired this glance that made me weak ...

That’s good, says he, now you beware
or I’ll fix you with my alien stare,
ya hate that, don't ya, Human Kind
...so I said, well if you looked like wigit's avatar I would'nae mind.

Thank you very much. I should have added that at the very top. It does make it funnier.

MUST BE READ ALOUD IN SCOTS ACCENT.

I was laughing at the way we talk yesterday actually. I had a young man in fixing my internet and he was talking about his new iphone. I said to him-

malawdy's got wanny thaym

and then started thinking how far away from English it sounds. Directly translated it means -

my son has one of them

We Fifers are the hardest to understand by anyone other than 'oorsels'.

Well done - I read it aloud, but fear my attempt at the accent faded in and out - much fun - S&F

I pretty much got to the end but by then my accent had morphed to Irish and I had an overwhelming urge to the word 'potatoes'.

Nice work wigit

When I read it aloud I think I ended up sounding like Richard Burton and I'm pos he was Welsh.

And I'm female, haha.

This is bloody brilliant! You MUST go back to writing, and soon!

Oh and well, I asked the OH to do a Scottish accent and read it, do you know...both his parents are Scottish and he stil sounded Cockney born and bred haha!

Thanks for your nice comments and flags. I've only written poems, four in total and they're all on ATS somewhere. If this was a horse race... well, I haven't fallen off yet.

...and wigit's coming up on the outside..

wigit's a female? oops. Must be the avatar.

Nicely done, and even though I can't do a Scottish accent, I can imagine what it would sound like.

Flagged, of course.
