::: Burns Loved The Lasses

Burns loved the lasses, out with many he walked
How the parsons grumbled: how the people talked!
Condemned he was by parson and people, in pulpit and letter!
Shame on the ladies who walked out with a man like he!

The lad that loved the lasses scorned them all
Who he and his ladys as sinners they did call
And chided them for having nothing to do better!
Than annoy two of God creatures who in Love be!

My only issue with this piece is in "ladys". Other than that, well done. This actually reminds me of my cousin :)
