That greedy little fella. The granary door came openj He ran with all his speed To get inside and find some grain To satisfy his greed. He gobbled grain as fast as sin. Ho* much that pig could eat! He thought this was hog heaven, And It was his big treat. He ate so fast and ate so much, It looked like he would burst; Then all at once he got real dry. He had an avful thirst. He waddled over to the creek, And my, how much, he drank, With water he filled all the cracks, Then lay down on the bank. The grain got wet, it soaked up fast, And then began to swell. It swelled so big the pressure grew; He really wasn't well. He was in pain and. misery, And rapidly grew worse, There wasn t room to nold. it ^,11 , And so his stomach burst. When Delia found him lying there. She thought that he was tired; But when she took a closer look. She saw he had expired. The tale of Delia's greedy pig Became our family guide. At every family meal, we told Ho» pig from greed had died. -68-
