Poems and Songs of Robert Burns: Epigram At Brownhill Inn[1]

Epigram At Brownhill Inn[1]

And plenty of bacon each day in the year;
We've a' thing that's nice, and mostly in season,
But why always Bacon—come, tell me a reason?

Bacon was the name of a presumably intrusive host. The lines are said to have "afforded much amusement."-Lang
