ONIONS


What a pest you are!
Yet needed to make my meal delicious

Sting my eyes till its blinded by tears
No harm have i done to you
yet you determine to make me cry
All i want is a tasty meal

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
