William Nicol Scotland Epitaph

William Nicol (1744—1797) became classics master in the High School, Edinburgh in 1774. Burns became a drinking crony of Nicol and the teacher accompanied him on his tour of the Highlands.

Ye maggots, feed on Nicol's brain,
For few sic feasts you've gotten;
And fix your claws in Nicol's heart,
For deil a bit o' t's rotten.
