Huffin n' Puffin

Huffin n' Puffin

A Poem by Dave Brown



Pudgy Peter porker ran in a desperate bid

To keep each pig part from becomin undid

Prayin there’d be no pursuin, heaven forbid

Hustlin, to be escapin Thanksgivin’s cookin grid


Huffin n’ Hurryin to the perimeter picket fence

Where squeeze through problem’s would be immense

Managin to get his great bod halfway through

But his big, bulbous butt, was stillin plain view


Yellin fur his Mother, askin what he could do

The sad sorry Sow didn’t have the vaguest clue

Then he got him the idea of aimin his snout to

The offendin area, n’chompin an escape chew


Wood chips flew in every which-way direction

With progress receivin constant inspection

Until ample room for his massive mid-section

Required one mega-grunt for stickin-hog ejection


Then, into the wilderness, pantin Peter Porker ran  

Runnin willy-nilly without any positive plan                  

But’d increased his lifespan avoidin the fryin pan

N’bout their slam-bam ham-jam, gave not a damn

You know I do love a good escape story. I got one here with a serving of alliteration sprinkled on top. Porky Peter managed to avoid the frying pan and I was delighted to hear that. I love animals too. Not a veggie, but I do struggle sometimes. Hoping your Thanksgiving is a good one for you and yours Dave.

Big, bulbous butt; sad, sorry sow. Dave, you are an awfully ambitious alliterator.

a carefully considered commentary
I really wish I can laugh as this deserves to be but U have no energy that I even look into the poem I am supposing to work on and feel zero energy, it seems I will be getting sick... still that second verse there lol, at least even without a lifeplan he is now away from the pan!

That doesn't sound good
Go shmooze out until you feel better

dearest Dave… I was raised a Vegetarian and had a Chicken and a Duck for Pets. I love all the Farm animals… so I understand your Quest. Very humorous and true to Life. Think I will have a Carrot and Stuffing for Thanksgiving. Gently, Pat
