|- although relevant to his own times too, ofcourse. Shame so little has changed and things got so much worse in the intervening period.|
Wi' plenty o' sic trees, I trow,
The warld would live in peace, man;
The sword would help to mak a plough,
The din o' war wad cease man.
Like brethren wi' a common cause,...
We'd on each other smile, man;
And equal rights and equal laws
Wad gladden every isle, man.
