The Argument

Said Jock McBrown to Tam McSmith,
“A little bet I’m game to take on,
That I can scotch this Shakespeare myth
And prove Will just a stoodge for Bacon.”

Said Tam McSmith to Jock McBrown,
“Ye gyke, I canna let ye rave on.
See here, I put a shilling down:
My betting’s on the Bard of Avon.”

Said Jock McBrown to Tam McSmith,
“Come on, ye’ll pay a braw wee dramlet;
Bacon’s my bet – the proof herewith. . .
He called his greatest hero – HAMlet.”
