Burns Today

burns winking

Burns was about attitude and authenticity. He was fresh, flawed and in your face, endlessly defiant, rallying against authority and haunted by mistakes. In his repetitive, relentless and cold world he wrote poetry like his life depended on it. When he saw hypocrisy he punctured it with words. 
No shortbread tin, romanticised Burns, but rebellious, cool and angry,  today he challenges us to value ourselves, our language, our lives. He inspires us to be free thinkers, question inequality and grasp the issues around us. He was a change maker, we continue to be his change.
