Good Pig To Grunt

00020f30_medium

A 47 pound Yorkshire
For 90 cents a pound
Drank 52 gallons Jersey milk
Ate 5 bushels worm-eaten apples,
14 pecks bird-pecked peaches,
4 wheelbarrows sunchoke tubers
And 28 buckets Shumard-dropped acorns
And weighing 320 pounds, unwillingly
Gave us bacon, ham, shoulder roast, loin roast
Ribs and sausage mild
Ground pork and good grunts
To last us quite a while
