Pigs Feed
 
The best of British, rare breed taste,
Swine fever slaughter, loath to waste,
Quantity assurance - take out the stress?
Quality sacrificed, more or less!
No straw-sucking yokels in this field,
Porky Politiciansí stripe-suited shield,
Ham, Bacon, Sausages, lean pork chops
Canopies, trickle feed and feeding troughs,
Boars, Gilts, Weaners, brooding sows,
Slurry slopping silos - thatís the way it goes.
Farrowing crates, bungalows and arks,
Pig feedís all you need to play in this park.
