Twas a cold day in December when the lady of the place,
Decided she needed some Christmas greens to fill an empty place.
So dressed up very warmly, with boots so she wouldn’t fall,
She found her handsome husband, looking rugged in coveralls.
Hand in hand together, they headed through the snow,
When suddenly they heard a noise that made them say “Oh no!”
They turned around in horror and saw to their dismay,
They were being followed by a piglet, out of his pen that day.
“Go back you pesky varmint” yelled the woman of the place.
But that curious little piglet just kept right up with their pace.
She waved her hands and stomped her feet but it was of no avail.
That piglet would not turn around, for he thought her basket was a pail.
And pails mean food in a piggy’s world, so he kept up with their gait.
And with a sigh they realized, they had to take a piglet on their date.
One thought on “A Tale of Christmas Greens”
Ha ha ha! What a cute poem. I can just picture this happening. Thanks for the laugh!
