All Sorts and Conditions

It having been rumoured that there was a possibility of McGonagall shaking the dust of “Auld Reekie” off his feet and returning to Dundee, the poet writes that “It is not but a false rumour got up by some Enemy.” He further declares that “Since I came to live among the inhabitants of Beautiful Edinburgh I have been as happy as the day is long, because I am getting a fair share of public Support, and more I need not.” So Dundee must just hide itself under sackcloth and ashes yet awhile.

    Blessed William can’t you see
    We all want here in dear old Dundee!
    Without you life is not interesting at all,
    So come on back Topaz McGonagall!
