Finola Scott – Privilege


No cheering crowds, no fanfare flares
just quiet scratching in flimsy booths
as we make our mark.
Listen closely, you can hear
trampling horses
prison doors clang
feeding-tubes clatter.
All so we can use our heads.

Finola Scott is an Edinburgh based Slam winning Granny. She loves the vibrancy of the performance scene – doing a thing that terrifies her in the safety of pubs. Widely published in anthologies , magazines and webzines she writes to explain herself and the world to her children (and herself).
