A Pig That Feeds Himself

I saw a pig that feeds himself

How fat he had become

Amidst a glop of his own slop

His contentment had begun

And no one dined with this large swine

And no one cared to know

How easy to content oneself

Yet sadly quite alone

He mixed the scraps of leftover food

Mealie-pap, bread and fruit

Thinking that to serve oneself

He’d find a greater truth

But then came in the farmer and

A man from the slaughter house

To bait and dig and kill the pig

Smarter than a mouse

And so you see it cannot be

Self-serving is the way

Just ask the ham how well it went

As you eat your eggs today.
