Weapons of Phwoar

by Steven Urquhart Bell

“Putin admits Russia can’t supply clothes to front line troops”
The Telegraph

The Scots before battle in Braveheart,
Though the English were armed to the hilt,
Displayed their contempt and defiance
With a cheeky wee lift of the kilt.

So forcing your troops to fight naked
Is quite undeniably bold,
Though the impact of flaunting their manhood
Will be lessened a bit by the cold.
