Three Fables

33

Teacher Goose told Piglet: “Please,
write on the board your 33’s!”

Piglet went, but stood stock still.
“Ready then? Write what you will.”

Piglet stood there feeling his worst,
“I just don’t know which 3 goes first!”


The Plane

In a plane in the clouds so high,
some read; some sleep –at least they try.

A pup is playing with a ball;
it hits a piglet, pink and small.

So the pig says, “It’s a long ride.
Stretch your legs and play outside!”


Parachute

This little Piggy went to the store
to buy a parachute and nothing more.

The Stork clerk said, full of pride,
“This will give you a wonderful ride.
Like all our goods, it’s guaranteed.
We stand behind our product, indeed!

If it doesn’t work as it is tasked,
we will exchange it, no questions asked.”
