Three Little Pigs

by joetwo

Three little pigs lived in a row

The water they’d drink and crops they’d sow

Though their lives were idyllic they had one great fear

That the horrible wolf would come over quite near

#

Present day wolves do not huff or puff

In modern times strength just isn’t enough

Instead these terrors use the law

To get fresh pork meat down their maw

#

Our first wee pig made his house of straw

The wolf took one look and figured its flaw

“This is too easy!” he laughed with a snort

Then jumped in a taxi to go to court

#

He came back with a writ, said the structure’s unsound

“Why this couldn’t support the weight of a hound”

The wee pig was evicted out into the street

And the wolf had something lovely to eat

#

Our second pig thought it was good

To build a home with sticks, of wood

The wolf did grin, and wink, and nudge

Then made a phonecall to the judge

#

“Of all bad planning this is damnable!”

The new writ claimed this house was flammable

The pig was cast out like a sinner

And wolfy had another dinner

#

Pig three was not like those thicks

He had made his house of bricks

With all the features up to code

Rated to the highest load

#

The wolf, aghast, was simply stumped

What trick he tried was quickly dumped

He figured it not worth the trouble

So headed elsewhere on the double

#

The lesson learned from piggy three

With wolves preparation’s key

The best way out from their jaws

Is keeping up with planning laws
