Coming Through The Glen. Once Again

Happy New Year!

Highland Shortbread Petticoat Tails
are made in Scotland not in Wales.
Prickly dry like a Highland thistle,
they made us whoop and whistle.

Smooth as a song from Robbie Burns
skipping through the heather and the ferns.
Butter is prominent in their taste.
Once the packet opened, not one biscuit went to waste.

They belong in crofts, not in the house
out on the moors with the famous grouse.
When the wind is cold and sharp and brisky,
dunk the shortbread in your malt whisky.

Biscuit: Highland Speciality Shortbread Petticoat Tails
Taste test: 8 out of 10
Cost: £1 from Poundland in Shirley.

  1. Great advice for Burns night later this month. I shall get a packet of shortbread and a bottle of scotch in to start dunking!


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
