true swing
slow debate -
when wow
is slower than an hour
and the pigs are home
before you know it
smelling of truffles
and sounding of small talk

let and live, pigs say -
when asked about physics
an answer today
is a question tomorrow
so why worry

What do pigs know about Physics anyway?

Russell Ragsdale said...

The Tao of Pigs sounds like a title for an interesting book of poetry, Ozy! Thanks for the comment, my friend.

Hi Gautami! I'm not really certain what they know but, one thing for sure seem to be that they are pretty complacent. Thanks for the comment, sweet lady.

Hi Russell! Either a pantoum or a sestina would be terrific-- just post whichever one you like better!

Pat Paulk said...

I love the ending!! All things are temporal even the answers. Perfect!!

Russell Ragsdale said...

Hi Tiel! I started work on a new pantoum this morning. I hope it will be ready tomorrow but it may run into the weekend. I'll post it when it is ready.

Hi Pat! Glad you enjoyed this musical little ditty. Thanks for the great comment, my friend.
