Practice Reading, Pigs DO Fly!
One late night I went to bed
a weird thought was in my head.
What if, pigs all fat and pork
Could do more than simply walk?
What if all pigs had a gift
That they could easily lift
Their whole body off the ground
And fly, endlessly, all around?
What if the food I buy
Could actually, really fly!
But my brain kicked in, “No way!
Pigs flying, no, not today!”
Little did I know that night,
Though my brain thought it was right,
That I would be proven wrong
When the sun rose and daylight shone
Outside my window I saw . . .
A flying pig! I was in awe!
It was a miracle, in the sky,
gliding low, soaring high!
Almighty and all-pink.
As it left it gave me a wink.
So, whether you’re young or old,
Shy or bold,
Don’t forget and don’t be sly,
PIGS DO FLY!
So, tonight I will go to bed after the sun has shined
But wait! That’s put a thought in my mind.
What if Cows, all black and white
Had gotten the power of the flight?
Thank you, Morgan, for sharing this awesome poem with us! It is AWESOME!
