Square Pig (POEM and WOODCRAFT) by BatmanWithBunnyEars Square Pig (POEM and WOODCRAFT) by BatmanWithBunnyEars

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

The poem is meant to be very rhythmic while delivering an uplifting message, like a nursery rhyme.

The pig in the photo is my first attempt at a craft, so if I made a pig’s ear of it, that’s why. Although if you don’t think the pig looks good, you can always put some lipstick on it.

If you haven’t had enough lametastic jokes yet, the wood parts I used were made by Lara’s Crafts. :iconlaracroftplz:

Here's the poem, in case the PDF doesn't show up for you:


Not A Square Pig in a Round Hole

There once was a pig
Who didn’t fit in,
Although his heart was big,
And glowed from within.

He often frowned,
Because the others would stare:
They were all round,
And he was square.

One day, some were especially mean,
And he grew tired of being unique.
Later that day, he built a machine,
To finally change his physique.

But before he began to transform,
A round cow saw him and asked,
“Why would you want to conform?”
“What’s the point of this task?”

He lamented, “It’s hard to be square
in a world that’s round.
It hurts when they stare,
And joke around.”

The cow replied to ease his pain,
“I didn’t mean to seem snooty.
I stared not out of disdain,
But because of your beauty.”

The moral is cliché, but wise:
To your true self be dutiful,
And in somebody’s eyes,
You’ll always be beautiful.

I think I've fallen in love with this.
And that pig ate my heart.
...
That came out wrong.

OH GOD OH GOD, GET THAT IMAGE OUT OF MY BRAIN....

I'm not really into literature, but I think that the poem rhymes well. Just don't know whether it is good or not for me.

This is beautiful! You are an amazing poet! Truly! If only more people could read this, and understand it, maybe the world could be a better place. Once again, amazing work.
