"I’ll ha’e nae hauf-way hoose"

Bethel, 1967, John Bellany.

“I’ll ha’e nae hauf-way hoose, but aye be whaur
Extremes meet—it’s the only way I ken
To dodge the curst conceit o’ bein’ richt
That damns the vast majority o’ men.”
from `A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle’ (1926) Hugh MacDiarmid (Christopher Murray Grieve 1892 - 1978).
