THOUGHTS OF A TINY PIG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If I had a different life to live
Last Line: To get away from the smell.
Subject(s): Farm Life; Pigs; Agriculture; Farmers; Boars; Hogs


If I had a different life to live
this would be the foolish one--
to root, hog, sleep and procreate.
Always across my mud hole I see
the farmer waiting for my size
to grow, as he leans close up upon his rake.
I do not even want to be the farmer
nor the wife whose pig is well done,
but the stranger passing by
out of curiosity and anxious
to get away from the smell.
