This week you’ll find me writing
about an animal each day
So, for Wednesday, here’s a mention
of the pig. ‘Hoorah!’ you say
A whoop indeed appropriate
for this most noble creature
Which I am proud to here include
and in this poem feature

This one is in the mud of course
and where else would he be?
For there is quite simply nowhere
better than a place ‘squelchy’
And I know that he is happy there
by the look upon his face
One of complete contentment
for he’s in his favourite place

  1. The pig does look very contented and at home.Lovely poem.

  2. I see breakfast looking at me.

  3. They are smart creatures, cool mud pools on a hot summer day. There was this show on Playhouse Disney I adored as a child, Stanley. He’d open up his Great Big Book Of Everything and with his talking goldfish visit an animal every day. I remember the episode with the pigs 🙂
