From Presbie to Piskie

Piskie, Piskie, bow and ben’,
On yer knees and up again.

Presbie, Presbie, too proud to bend,
Sit ye doon on man’s chief end.

This rhyme came to my mind as I was thinking about myself.  How I was brought up as a Presbie and now am a Piskie!!!!

I am reliably informed that this rhyme was common in the playgrounds in Scotland!  Unfortunately, I am too “young” to remember!!!
