Sad Dog. Happy Pig.


When God speaks to us,
The earth trembles. In the wind runs the noise,
Of a pack of stray dogs....scavenging through a dumpster.

In the silence
We remember the tale,
Of the Puppy who was nursed by Mother Pig.
There among her four sons.
Bottoms knocking.
Muzzles competing for the same tit.
'That's so nice of her to share.'
Thought the Puppy.
One evening
Mother Pig couldn't provide milk.
Her four sons
Separated the puppies intestines,
As if it were four servings of spaghetti.

After the feast
Mother pig left the carcass in the barn.
So all the other animals understood
What would happen if her sons were hungry.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
