.4. A Pig In Muck - Poem by David Threadgold

Up to my knees in the pigsty
Where little pigs learned how to swim
I needed a very large shovel
To dig out the ones who were dim

I found one asleep in the corner
His snout stuck out taking in air
Under the sludge I gave him a nudge
And found not just one but a pair

Both seemed to get rather angry
They’d settled down snug for the night
My nudge caused a nasty reaction
Both charged at me trying to bite

Escaping became quite a problem
My whellies got stuck in the mud
Things all went black when I fell on my back
Where I lay with my pigs in the muck

    Bet you came up with a great complexion David, muck is good for the skin, or is it perhaps mud - not sure! ! ! ! ! HA! Great piece of humour, well done indeed.
    Loved it.
    love and hugs Ernestine XXX
