Imagination Nation

There are tartans and teapots and twills up here,
and haggis and Hovis and hail.

But deep in the loch, there's a beastie
(they say she's as big as a whale).

She's been hiding for many millenia,
disguised by the chop of a wave.

If you're quick you might catch her on camera,
as she's diving back down to her cave.
