Five Little Pigs

This little pig to market was sent,
And all his money foolishly spent.

This is the one that never would roam,
But always is happy and safe at home

This is the pig with lots of money,
To buy roast beef, and bread and honey.

But this little chap, this other one,
Is very poor, and so he had none.

And this little fellow is only three,
So all he can say is wee, wee, wee.

— L. E. HOMFRAY.
