Hi
Can I make an early claim for the poem about Robert Burns. I think I can do the Scottish dialect reasonable well, I have done it before.

And it is PL OK. I don't have access to the MW yet, so you'll have to change it there.

This is going to be fun!

Looks like you have access now. :)

The only other poem I read through was the Publishers Preface and it was definitely fun.

Thanks,
