I have seen this short Burns poem today (in a comment to an article about May's visit to Trump) and decided to have a go at it.
Tiuyalye pa Heruion síve
Ar pa i Kánor as ita mantel noa,
‘Nanta tsette lemya illume tsette,
Kénai to Táriva lóke hlíka.
OF Lordly acquaintance you boast,
And the Dukes that you dined wi’ yestreen,
Yet an insect’s an insect at most,
Tho’ it crawl on the curl of a Queen!
