The pudding is a battle cry, a trump to fortify and fit the men to fight and women too -- a lass is not a lump of useless skin and weeping. Though she's slight, she'll wield her weapon well; the Sassenach will cower in her wake, like Athelstan, while she'll engage the fringe. The fierce attack will clear the ground and soon only the clan remain; bring forth the spoils from farm and field and sing of victory, of years long past and days just done, of wounds that never healed, and dare to dream of freedom come at last. Be proud and tell your children about when you voted "no" and went back home again
