MUSA recently took part in StAnza poetry festival. Below is one of the five fantastic poems which won our competition and are now on display in MUSA.

Medal of Robert Douglas

“Riddle-me this” laughed the victorious Douglas Waving his silver prize.

“What binds the hunter to the hunted?

Aye – this arrow before your eyes!”

But unchivalrous musketry tied

Him to his Maastricht death.
