  1. This Little Piggy

    by Anonymous

    This little piggy went to the market,
    This little piggy stayed home,
    This little piggy had roast beef,
    This little piggy had none,
    And this little piggy cried wee wee wee all the way home.

  2. A Story of Our Runt

    by Ed. Blair

    Once we owned a little pig,
    All it did was grunt, grunt,
    Small, because he wasn't big,
    And we called him Runt, Runt.
    Born the wrong time of the moon
    'Cause he died so very soon.

    When we fed the little pigs,
    They would come right fast, fast,
    Little Runt who wasn't big
    Always got there last, last.
    And the others that were tall
    Crowded him and got it all.

    Then we lifted him outside,
    Little piggy Runt, Runt,
    Fed him till he stuck out wide,
    Yet he'd only grunt, grunt.
    For it seemed he couldn't grow
    Though he ate and swelled up so.

    Other little piggies' tails
    Would curl o'er their backs, backs,
    But this little piggie'e tail
    Looked more like a tack, tack.
    Or a little wooden peg
    Hung straight down between his legs.

    When we took the feed one morn
    To our little Runt, Runt,
    Saw at once he looked forlorn
    For he couldn't grunt, grunt.
    And he died then very soon,
    Born the wrong time of the moon.
