On having reached the Maule Monument above Tarfside finally, after six years

False summits tease
with hopes of triumph
gentle slopes from afar
gain new gradient
as valiant heroes
stumble up.

The transcendent hills
hitherto too daunting
for hungover me
finally conquered by
my imminence

Which by the time
felt very imminent

Dry mooths slaikit
by unchilled beer
our heroes savour
view won,  breathe
victor's fresh air
and wish
they had brought
more beer.
