The Learner

The learner

Penelope the porky pig
For tasty truffles learned to dig
The owner saw a little earner
Though Penny dear was but a learner.

Each one she found, she swiftly ate
She ate the lot, and put on weight
So, change of heart he sold her in yon
restaurant, as filet mignon.

Life’s too short

It was my old pal Dauphy who taught me that life is too short not to laugh at it. So, thanks again for all your kind words after I lost him this week. A special thank you goes to the people who said that I should continue with Hobbo’s Poems. I’m going to take your advice, and will be leaving Dauphy’s name and photos on the website, because he is as much a part of this as I am.

Todays poem, ‘Farmer Sue,’ is in our limerick section. Thank you
