178. Impromptu on Carron Iron Works
 
 
WE cam na here to view your warks,
  In hopes to be mair wise,
But only, lest we gang to hell,
  It may be nae surprise:
But when we tirl’d at your door        5
  Your porter dought na hear us;
Sae may, shou’d we to Hell’s yetts come,
  Your billy Satan sair us!
