Epitaph on a Wag in Mauchline

written in 1785

Lament 'im Mauchline husbands a', He aften did assist ye; For had ye staid whole weeks awa' Your wives they ne're had miss'd ye. Ye Mauchline bairns as on ye pass, To school in bands thegither, O tread ye lightly on his grass, Perhaps he was your father.
