Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Yes, they say pigs might fly
But I’m looking at the sky
I’m not sure what I’d do
If I knew that swine flew

If I get hit with the swine
I'm sure I'd do nothing but whine

What a lovely pun, David! And I cheerfully refer you to the popular, Caldecott award winning children's book, "Tuesday" where upon the last page pigs do indeed fly. :-)

Cheers!

Bravisimo!! This is one of my favorite types of poetry. Just little bits of rhyming fluff with a double entendre thrown in for good measure!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, David, and leaving a comment. And yes, great minds think alike and all that. Not sure I qualify for the equation but I went for it anyway!

You'd see the doc who'd check your temp
And ask you: "Have you met an imp,
a microscopic entity
who launches mass infirmity?"

And if your answer is "No way!"
Chances are that you can say
"I wash my hands quite regularly
while singing Happy Birthday, me!"

The flu swines can fly away as far as they want, as long as they don't plan on making another pig stop! ;-)

run screaming!!!!!!

Eddie Bluelights said...

The pig ran as fast as he could down the runway
Hoping to get launched in the air in a fun way
He jumped in the air
But crashed in depair
And wandered around with flu in a stun way!

Ouch!! sorry!!

Pigs canNOT be trusted - they are evil! ;-)
