Default It's Burns Night

Don't know if there are Burns suppers in Dubai tonight but here's a video showing the address to a haggis (with English translation).

The Selkirk Grace by Robert Burns (1759-1796):

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.
