Farmer had some little pigs

that were meant to go to market,

but the country went to Lockdown

so the pigs stayed home with Farmer.

They followed him all round the farm

and kept him sane in isolation,

they made the very best of pets,

they nearly had a conversation.

When the Lockdown ended

and they lifted the restrictions,

the piggies didn’t want to leave,

and Farmer didn’t do evictions.

He kept his pigs there on the farm

and never went to market,

he nearly starved to death himself

but that, he felt, was worth it.

Those little pigs had saved his bacon

in the long and lonely days of Covid,

so Farmer them live with him,

for as long as the piggies choose it.
