The Pig’s Tail – Norman Ault

Turtle ShellA furry coat has the bear to wear,
The tortoise a coat of mail,
The yak has more that his share of hair
But – the pig has the curly tail.

ParrotThe elephant’s tusks are sold of gold,
The slug leaves a silver trail,
The parrot is never too old to scold,
But – The pig has the curly tail.

DogThe lion can either roar or snore,
The cow gives milk in a pail,
The dog can guard a door, and more,
But – the pig has the curly tail.

PigFor the rest of the beasts that prey
From tiny mouse to the whale,
There’s much more that I could say today,
But the pig has the curly tail.
