Flash Fiction: The Eejit Pit by Jenny Lindsay

A poem from one half of spoken wordsters Rally & Broad

Jaggy, numpty mooth –
Wheesht wi yer chitter!
The nicht wiz sair an’ jiggered;
Noo, a thrang ae claes
Drapt oan the eejit pit …

Oor fear kist awa’
Wi carry-oot,
(Braw shoogle?)
Maun noo,
Fair morn isnae close.
