Doug And Skug - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Naturally with the name Doug
I'm interested in skug
from the Old Norse skuggi, shadow
and meaning that and shelter;

and even more so
because you can spell it scoug
and, just like you can say Doug as Doog,
you can say scoug as scoog.

I'm no dog
so I'm not so happy
that you can also say skug
as scog.
