Hi geeks!

I've just found out I've been asked to do a speech at a charity Burns Supper next week, don't have long to prepare :eek:

Does anyone have any tips on writing a Reply from the Lassies?!

Thanks!

A bit of Tam o shanter

But pleasures are like poppies spread,
You sieze the flower, its bloom is shed;
Or like the snow falls in the river,
A moment white--then melts for ever;
Or like the borealis race,
That flit ere you can point their place;
Or like the rainbow's lovely form
Evanishing amid the storm.--
Nae man can tether time or tide;
The hour approaches Tam maun ride;
That hour, o' night's black arch the key-stane,
That dreary hour he mounts his beast in;
And sic a night he taks the road in
As ne'er poor sinner was abroad in.

A lass without her laddie
Is a sorry sight to see.
Like a haggis without the oatmeal.
Or a golf ball without a tee.
Or a kilt without the tartan
Or which doesn't show the knee
WIthout a laddie for a husband,
the nights are long and cold.
We know this for a fact because
By Burns we have been told.
For all that and all that,
He says the man's the gold.
Wo if a lassie wants a laddie,
She need not search the whole world o'er,
But hust turn her e'e to Scotland, and
Find what she's looking for.
For the bonnie flow'r of Scotland
Is one that never wilts.
And it makes a lassie say with pride --
"Down with trousers! Up with kilts!"
Lassies -- Please raise your glasses now and

join with me in a toast --
To the Laddies!

MENtal illness
MENstrual cramps
MENopause
Ever noticed how all of our problems start with MEN?

Not content with that, when you have real problems it's a HISterectomy performed by a GUYnocologist

Reply to the Toast to the Lassies.

The crowd has expanded
I thought it was grand
"For speeches annat
Other folk, they can stand"
But Cath has a sore throat,
Lesley flatly said "NO"
Janet said she could maybe give it a go
But while she was picking David up from the floor
She strained so hard her wee neck it is sore.

Aye, here ah um again
Up at the head
Thankin oor Bruce
for the kind words he said.

A rhymster like Rab ah never will make
So my earnest endeavours
You'll just have to take
as the words of a lassie in reply to the man
We a' dae oor best, that's the best that we can.
