Twelve centuries ago, a holy man called st Columba travelled the river Nesa
To teach picts about god. When he someone had
Been bitten in loch by a monster, he took all his
Clothes off apart for his tunic, he got in the dark
Dirty water and suddenly a shocking rough and affrighting monster came out the water.
His skin was slimy and his tale was rough
He had a very dark and spiky tale.
It reminded me of changing my cousins’ nappy.
St Columba mad the sign of the cross ‘Hahn’ the crowd gasped.
‘Though shall go no further. Do not touch the man
Go back with all speed’ he said. The monster swam away. From now on everybody worshiped the love of god.
