Edinburgh Hogmanay Party

The Producers

Nice little earner. North.

Touting the tickets, providing the feast

promoting hip music in the elegant East

collecting the cash from Castle to Palace,

up North Faceless VIP’s

so brazen and gallus.

The Romantics

Giant screens, teenage dreams, middle age screams,

arrangements made, carry-out paid,

frantic texting, signals connecting,

smiling, squeezing, swigging, swallowing

straight from the bottle.


The Bells

A gathering of like-minded

souls, singing the Bard,

holding, hoping,

this is the one,

this is the year.

Prayers are silent,

wishes warm within,

harmonious in our oneness

[Helen-Marie Tuiwaiwai]
