A lord, no doubt, may be a "birkie" and a "coof," but may not a ploughman be so too?
"Robert Burns" by Principal Shairp
I ca' him coof an' hav'rel too, An' frown wi' scornfu' ee.
"The Galaxy" by Various
In a' he says or does, there's sic a gait, The rest seem coofs compar'd with my dear Pate.
"The Gentle Shepherd: A Pastoral Comedy" by Allan Ramsay
'You see yon birkie caw'ed a Lord,
Who struts and stares an' a' that,
Though hundreds worship at his word
He's but a coof for a' that.
For a' that and a' that,
A man's a man for a' that.
"Poet And Peer" by Robert W Service
