 SOACKS
by Douglas Bell


Plain soacks, fancy soacks,
Multi-coloured weans’ soacks.
Guid soacks, din soacks,
Fit for the bin soacks.

Haill soacks, torn soacks,
Cannae fin its neebor soacks.
Mither’s soacks, faither’s soacks,
Sisters’ and brithers’ soacks.

Nike soacks, umbro soacks,
Caket wi muck soacks.
Soapy soacks, dreepin soacks,
Wavin fae the line soacks.

Holey soacks, schuil soacks,
Rollin doon ma leg soacks.
Spottit soacks, strippit soacks,
Kept aside ma drawers soacks.
