Kirsty Veitch (burn the bible)
An elderly stern-faced woman stands on an Edinburgh street dressed head to toe in green.

The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

Kirsty Veitch

When the gloaming light is spent
ye'll maybe see auld Kirsty ride
above the towering tenement
where all the ghosts and gremlins bide.
She's the mistress of the devil,
essence of evil, Satan's bride.
