Why Burnsie Missed His Friday Deadline

It was Robbie Burns Day Friday and so Burnsie celebrated all weekend.  He did get back to the books this morning  and offered this :
  They named me after Bobbie Burns
  In hopes I'd be a poet
  It t'is a long apprenticeship 
  I hope I do not blow it. 
  My love is like my orange orange ball
  That flies through bluest sky
  I'd jump ten thousand miles I would   
  T'ill all the seas run dry. 
 
          (Or something like that.)  The End. 
Ad here Eva Cassidy sings  the original my love is like a red red rose ... like no one else can.
