Tom Tom

Tom Tom

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Tom Tom the piper’s son, was gunna steal a pig

Thinking he’d grab and run, but the pig was too big

So he left that very large pig in its pen

And then, he headed out once again

This time over to the house of Tommy Tucker

Whose dad was a trucker named Wayne

Tommy was a deviant hot-wirer, the real deal

And Tom Tom had found a truck they could steal

Both hoped on this night, crime was a-payin


Tom Tom had found a little rusty Datsun pickup

Which Tommy got going, after a slight hick-up

And as they headed back to the pen for the pig

From a big jug, they both took more than a swig

Arriving at the pig pen, things looked copacetic

And with the courage booster, they felt energetic

Jumping into the pig pen, both landed in slop

The pig started running and it wouldn’t stop

Tom Tom slipped down into the slop, face first

As farmer and shotgun, from the house burst


The farmer saved his pig from further harm

As Tommy grabbed Tom Tom’s slop covered arm

The farmer and shotgun did not find it hard

To keep two dumb Toms, both under guard

Unfortunately for the two Toms of this pig fable

Their night ended at the Law’s booking table

The arresting Constable, with a smile on his face

Labelled these two as a drunken, pig stealing disgrace

Ha ! You know Dave those two Tom's got their just desserts. Pleased the pig outran them both and the farmer came to the rescue. A positive ending. You know how much I like that. The good has to win, the bad must be put in its place :)) Have a good day and a happy weekend.
