Robert Burns (1759–1796).  Poems and Songs.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
49. Epigram on the said Occasion
 
 
O DEATH, had’st thou but spar’d his life,
  Whom we this day lament,
We freely wad exchanged the wife,
  And a’ been weel content.
Ev’n as he is, cauld in his graff,        5
  The swap we yet will do’t;
Tak thou the carlin’s carcase aff,
  Thou’se get the saul o’boot.
