Welcome to Scotland Donald John Trump!

‘Breathes there the man’
Sir Walter Scott


I
Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d,
As home his footsteps he hath turn’d,
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.

1. I don't know which is more ironic.....

A poem from a Scot that blasts their "future" visitor, or that it was posted by Mme. Defarge (Guillotine, guillotine!!!!!!).

10. Perhaps Sir Walter Scott visited our time in a fever dream and returned to his bed

weeping, not for the man with soul so dead but for those who suffered and died because he lived.

12. Thanks for the apt dose of Sir Walter Scott

And from it I learned a new word which applies to the subject, then and now. pelf: riches or wealth, especially if ill-gained.
