The Nest

Mag 111
image: ParkeHarrison


He had been accused
of not putting down roots
and being sort of fly by night

So in a call and response
Peter built a nest

He started small
not wanting to foul it

As he had before

Just a wee small space
to call his very own

A frugal place for a Scot

Wi' his tings aboot him.

"He started small
