Prickly

A stereotypical image of a Scotsman, in a kilt, playing bagpipes.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 28 May 2021, spartan.

A brave-hearted Scotsman unwise,
For a rest, sat in glen, felt surprised,
Wearing underwear spartan,
Beneath kilted tartan,
When a thistle brought tears to his eyes.
