The Bonnie Prince

Chapter 1
At the beginning was me. So it is with everyone.
2  What happens afterwards, that's where opinions diverge.
3  I'll settle the questions I can;
4  My mother sat in a hot, humid hall, smoking and drinking daiquiris
5  In an eighteenth century house, sweltering and bloated with me.
6  She was an exile, a German, a plebeian, a mouse from Ohio.
7  My father was a lord, until the day he dried up and blew away.
8 But I have always been bonnie, the only Scot in my family.
9  Thus it was, on the day I was born.
