Post 197: Pigs, Harry Truman, Churchill, romping, pig picking, South Carolina

by Carol Bass

“I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.” Winston Churchill

“No man should be allowed to be president who does not understand hogs.” Harry Truman

The $50 Dollar a Plate Pig Picking

and the difference between ginkgo balboa and ginseng
are vital for a rich life
and you must be still and quiet for a long time
to understand

The lone man fishing reeled in a skate
that flapped like a wounded bird in the sand
The man seemed veiled in sadness mist

Was his son missing?

The black monarch flew straight up the middle
of the steps
like an actor arriving at the Oscars
