Piety

The pig is taught by sermons and epistles
To think the God of Swine has snout and bristles.

This was one of my 'daily poems' sent to me seemingly without rhyme nor reason. I was surprised at how contemporary his work would be now,2006. I could imagine him performing as the young passionate poets do, no notes, the possibility of adding sound such as snorts and possibly ironically placed swelling strings. This one I could see embellished with a couple of snorks at the end that Mary Walsh is so famous for. The ones that she produces with a whole donut in her mouth.
