Of the man in Peterhead who acts for you.
He is grateful for your money, he appreciates your cheers,
Your sympathy is ample for his needs,
But there’s more important things than resolutions, cash or
Why not give him just a sample say of deeds.
Twas for you he garnered knowledge, sacrificed his very youth,
He worked for you until his head turned grey.

And having thought it, had the guts to say.

His lion heart is yours if he is spared,
Then workers for your own sake liberate MacLean
You could do it ay tomorrow if you dared.
