Hello. Does anybody recall the title or the rest of this scrap of probably Robert Burns poetry? goes something like: "... nor duke that ye dined with yester'een. A crab louse is still but (or yet) a crab (or louse) tho' perched on the c*** of a (or o' a) queen." I would like to know for a friend who is writing a book on Scottish nationalism. Thanks!
