About this work
Satire on the Scots. Probably published to ridicule Highlanders during the Highland Rebellion of 1745
Sawney in the boghouse: To London Sawney come, who, from his birth, Had dropt his folio cates on Mother Earth; Shewn to a boghouse, gaz'd with wondering eyes, Then, down each venthole, thrust his brawny thighs; And squeezing cry'd "Sawney's a laird. I trow", Neer did he naably disembaage 'till now.
