Ode to the Pig: His Tail

by Walter R. Brooks

My tail is not impressive
But it's elegant and neat.
In length it's not excessive —
I can't curl it round my feet —
But it's awfully expressive,
And its weight is not excessive,
And I don't think it's conceit,
Or foolishly possessive
If I state with some agressive–
ness that it's the final master touch
That makes a pig complete.
