Witch Pardon?

Witch Pardon?

3,387 people in Scotland,

2,845 women,

kings, lairds, kirks, and men

dished out dark death

to all of them.

 

We’ll forgive them now.

I heard her say,

300 years too late.

 

Forgive, for what? I ask.

Forgive them for their past.

But they did no wrong.

We drowned them though,

hung them too,

burned them at the stakes

for things, they didn’t do.

 

All Scots should hang our heads in shame,

and pardon them, all of them.

542 men, and

2,845 women.

 

Build a national monument,

so that folk can see

the type of wee country

Scotland used to be.
