Robert Burns and Wycombe

Buckinghamshire has been referred to as a land of 'Politics and Poetics'.
Its poetic power is so great that even a diehard Scot such as Robert Burns (1759-96) was compelled to mention the town in his poem 'Here's A Health To There That's Awa'.
Here's a health to them that's awa!
An here's to them that's awa!
Here's to Maitland and Wycombe!
let wha does na like 'em
Be built in a hole in the wa'!
