Abercromby Epitaph

A strolling Scots musician named Abercromby wrote this epitaph for his tombstone in a Highland churchyard:

Here Crummy lies enclosed in wood
Full six feet one and better
When tyrant death grim o'er him stood
He faced him like a hatter.
Now lies he low without a boot
Free from a world of bustle,
And silent now is Crummy's flute
And awful dry his whistle.
