AYE, MON, IT'S TRUE; I'M NO' THAT WEEL, by             Poet's Biography
Last Line: An' doubt na mony bodies are
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Subject(s): Sickness


Aye mon, it's true; I'm no that weel.
Close prisoner to my lord the de'il,
As weak 's a bit o' aipple peel,
Or ingan parin',
Packed like a codfish in a creel,
I lie disparin'.

Mon, it's a cur-ous thing to think
How bodies sleep and eat and drink;
I'm no that weel, but micht be waur
An' doubt na mony bodies are.
