Och, It's Wee Jonnie Updike.
rewrite of Scottish national bard Robert Burns (you'll be singing his "Auld Lang Syne"
in about 24 hours), by the scrofulous old Joyce of the 'burbs himself. The original verse is "To a Mouse", rewritten after the news that geneticists find a lot in common between the DNA of mice and men.
Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie,
Braw science says that at the leastie
We share full ninety-nine per cent
O' genes, where'er the odd ane went.
'At the leastie
'!? Jings, crivens, help ma boab, I think he's jeopardised his joab.
