Scotland and Democracy
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
  In Falkirk, they were discussing, not quite
debating, Scottish independence: questions
raised, adequately answered on both sides;
 
till one member of the panel distinguished
herself, pro-independence, unkempt red hair
reinforcing the brand, declared her passion
 
for Scotland; it was an epiphany;
pro-unionists reciprocated quickly,
declaring equal passion; but the issue
 
of independence was grasped by all present
as a resurgence of the Scottish race
from its integral place in Great Britain.
 
In separation, inescapably
to seek entry in the European Union,
to open its borders to immigrants;
 
to prove independence as a pure race
a piece of wishful thinking; that red hair’s
one of the shades in a democracy.
