Parody of Pigs
pig, little pig, let me come in
no, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin
I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in
goes the tale that Uncle Remus would spin.
politicians can be like the Three Little Pigs
all campaign while slip-sliddin' their jigs
built their platforms with straw and twigs
foundations at best being weakly rigged.
thank goodness the third pig wiser than most
truth for his base and was not bacon to roast
for a firm foundation, steady for any bellicose
to withstand ill winds blowing coast to coast.
porkers from different pins and conceptions
since piglets, learned sophistry and deception
used flowery speech for misleading perceptions
had only the boars and sows used contraception!
third piglet rose from a litter carefully planned
by morality and scruples and not by a gland
love of others and the respect for the land
pig's candidacy worthy of all swinery hands.
creeps the wolf, hungry and rather unhappy
rogue nation or an evil within, all rotten and crappy
takes a candidate with moral backbone and scrappy
represent fellow shoats rightly, that hasn't gone wacky.
doors of all three came the wolf passing through
out, come out little pigs I want to meet you
wolfie, we know you and what you will do
predator, he blew away a few homes and ate two.
the third wise pig, well, his strong house held fast
upon truth and respect—enduring virtues to last
pigdom leaders are elected with patriotic class
isn't deceived and votes aren't miscast.
