STUBBORN PIG

The day my life went so crazy Was when I laid eyes on Daisy She was an old sow Who mooed like a cow And drove all farmhands crazy We tried to put her in a field But sadly that pig wouldn’t yield She’d sit down in her sty And she wouldn’t comply Her stubbornness would be revealed I said Daisy you will come a cropper The farmer will get you with a chopper Daisy sat and chewed grass And got mud on her a s s Soon Daisy became quite a whopper Old farmer Bill sharpened his knife And showed the honed blade to his wife He said it is time now I must kill a fat sow His poor wife just ran for her life! The farmer went out to the shed When Daisy saw him how just fled She hid behind a bull To escape a quick cull I’m relieved there was no bloodshed!

Hello Jan … Daisy saved herself this time, but there's still Christmas to come and she might be a little bit slower next time. Thanks for the giggler Jan - Lindsay

Daisy became quite a 'whopper,' you say? --- Perhaps Farmer Bill could have had his Whopper his way. (Catsup, mustard, pickle, hold the onions...) ~ Burger King
