Second Half...

Have you just been to the football? If so, you may have picked up a peh and a poetic napkin with a poem entitled 'First Half' on it! We're delighted that Dundee Makar (poet laureate for the city) W N Herbert wrote a poem especially for you football fans. Here's the poem in full: 
First half
 

When Moses McGill came doon the Law Hill
The hauf-time score wiz anely twa nil,
Says he, 'See me, Eh pairtit a sea -
But no as sweet as Tannadice Street
Divides thi Ayrabs fae the Dees...
 
Second half
 
'...Eh'll hae tae mention this tae God,
Noo, which ane's He? Izzit Billy Dodds
or Jocky Scott?' 'Ur you insane?' 
Says Desperate Dan (a theologi-an)
'He's baith Gilzean AND Jim McLean!' 
 
Extra time
 
'Ye'd hae yir Waallace's peh and eat it?' 
'Eh'll hae thon tablet tae - noo beat it.'
