The white winged symbol
Of hope and peace
They barred from the House of God.
Because of Doo poo.

Never barred, THEE - her Spirit resides within AND without smile.gif wink.gif

Watchin' where you place your shoe
While steppin' through the Square
In case you kick a passin' doo
And she drops one in your hair

They're no' too bothered who you are
They're just there for the feed
And if it wisnae for the statues there
They'd be sittin' on your hied. tongue.gif

  Spring Sparrow - fluffs feathers - falters then flies,
Starlings sing - sending sound - across blue sky,
Blackbird beckons - her young - home to nest,
The Glesga Doo, well she's the best.

  Enjoyed all the wee poems and love the Glasgow wit. When I read THH's it really tickled my sense of humor thinking about all the pigeons at the church. biggrin.gif

  She spread her wings and flew
For days across an empty sea
No landing place to find
And came back

She took to the air again
In endless search
Returning hungry

Then Noah in survivors Ark
And all his family too
Sang her praise
When twig in beak
To them she finally flew

The white winged symbol
Of hope and peace
They barred from the House of God.
Because of Doo poo. rolleyes.gif

  They call you names,
You figure of fun,
Laughs blister,
Scorch my soul,
Deep dirty, dirty deep,
These wounds inside,
How I weep.

First time I heard Doolaly Tap was in Lincolnshire. Thought it was a local expression ... since most of them were. laugh.gif

  doolaly doolaly tap was a very much used phrase in Glasgow to describe a person who was two coupons short of a toaster. My fatyher used in constantly. Later on I found the meaning was derived from the military mental hospital cantonment (Deolali) just outside Calcutta in the days of "British India". A tap was the term used for a chit or movement order and to get the Doolaly Tap meant you were off to the mental hospital.
Thought to have its' origins among the Gurkha.
