THE SEEVIN WEEKIES POEM - 1972

Not quite the 7 weekies, but my wee break was enjoyable just the same.
Time to get back into Retro mode again though!
Talking of summer breaks, here's a neat little poem on the subject of school holidays called "Seevin Weekies", written by local journalist & author David Phillips. He used to write using the Dundee tongue in publications such as Peoples Journal and Scots Magazine. DP also published a few books in his time, with this poem taken from a 1972 book of his titled "Oor Dundee".
7 witty verses to make you smile.
You should be able to read it ok as it is, but if you're you're struggling, click on the image to ENLARGE.

  1. Ahhhhhhhh ... so that's where the Dundee Street Poet Gary Robertson got his idea.

  2. Remember it well, as a teenager just started in D.C. Thomson, on a Friday reading bits of the Dundee Edition of the People's Journal as it went to press at lunchtime. Dave Philips' "Meh Dundee" column was a favourite. Welcome Back Retro!
