Butterfly Pig - Poem by Ted L Glines

Butterfly Pig
by Ted L Glines

Ah, the strange and elusive
butterfly pig flapping
flapping swooping gliding
but where
we said
where dost fly that butterfly pig?
we searched the piney woods
the hidden mountain valleys
we searched the whole world over
but have not found
that cleverly hidden nest
of the mysterious
butterfly pig
but we will find it
mark my words
we will ne'er give up
this quest
(you think me obsessed)
for the hiding butterfly pig
for we have proof
beyond all shades of doubt
the butterfly pig exists
what proof you ask
you doubting thomas
but I will make you
eat your doubting words
for what do you see
right here
upon my kitchen counter
right there sitting on my counter
displayed so openly
see this package
all the proof you need
what does the label say?
read it you unbeliever
smirking lurking unbeliever
read that label and weep
for it plainly says
“Butterfly Pork Chops! ”
