stuart macfarlane Scottish poems

I looked up Wikipedia to see who Stuart Macfarlane was and do you know what it said?


Well it said, "Sorry we do not know a Stuart Macfarlane - maybe he's a plumber - try Yellow Pages".

So I asked my wife - and she said, "It's you. You're Stuart Macfarlane".

I looked in the mirror and so I was!!!!

Well that was a surprise - and apparently I've written a number of books too.

Never Marry an Elephant by Stuart Macfarlane


Never Marry an Elephant,
Itís not a good idea,
I met one once at a dance,
While drinking too much beer.

Before I knew, I had proposed,
And a wedding day was set,
We werenít married by a minister,
We were married by the Vet.

We honeymooned at Glasgow Zoo,
It was a lot of fun,
We spent our time eating penguins,
While basking in the sun.

But soon our marriage was over,
And I was free once more,
Oh never marry an elephant,
For by gosh how they SNORE!
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)


Gonnae Put the Cat Oot by Stuart Macfarlane

Gonnae Put the Cat Oot,
Itís no that much tae ask.
Gonnae Put the Cat Oot,
Itís a simple enough task.
Gonnae Put the Cat Oot,
Itís all that I desire.
Gonnae Put the Cat Oot,
The bloody things oan fire.
