In the once-thriving city of Dundee

striding purposefully along for all to see

is this  eccentric, comic-character,  local man

known far and wide as Desperate Dan,

desperate, they say,  to get away

from this city  famous for its poets beside the river Tay

to the fine buildings of Embra or at least as far as  the fair city of Perth –

the most beautiful, flower-bedecked place on earth –

which is only thirty five or so miles away

along a picturesque if busy motorway

that runs alongside  the silvery Tay

which flows from Perth to Dundee every day

and where he hopes that his enjoyment

will be added to by the chance of gainful employment.

Until then, he’s worth a visit if you’re passing nearby.

Here he is eating his favourite –  cow pie.
