Animal poems - Pig
... smart, inquisitive, homely
What a bizarre animal is this?
Pinker than an angels lips,
Round as the chubby cheeks of a newborn child.
And a curly tail, to complete the comical ensemble.
Closer to a waddle than a walk, you sniff about,
Hanging with piggy friends, playing sometimes in mud.
What a cute yet comical little creature you are.
Hard to be taken seriously, which such an adorable upturned nose and smile.
Many may think you a cute but stupid creature - only good at sleeping and eating,
Many may think you dirty, and associate you with wet mud.
Many people would be very wrong.
You are underestimated little pig.
Your intelligence is second to few.
You are more intelligent than most dogs, and in many cases more inquisitive, more social and more playful.
Perhaps, were you less delicious cooked, you would be man's best friend,
I hope you will become my friend little pig. I will not blow your house down… I will help you build one, with mortar and purest affection.
More an education than poetry, who would guess a pig as a sexual creature?
Yet how many know that the love tool of a male pig is large and corkscrew shaped,
And that the orgasms of many female pigs can last up to half-an-hour.
Lucky little piggie.
In spite of high intelligence, you stay friendly, approachable,
You are cheeky, yet clean, comical and down to the earth you love.
You attitude to life is positive in all aspects.
You are underestimated by most, but not by me.
As this little piggy came home from adventures afar, and I saw her light up the path in all her magnificent glory.
