The Hog in the Heath

Image result for wild hog

The Hog waits in the Heath

Lapping at the stream

He grunts and snorts merrily

In safety it would seem

As he snuffles and he shuffles

The hunters gather round

They’re closing in from all sides

To trap the feast they found

The Hog waits in the Heath

As hunters raise their spears

And slam! dunk! crash! thump!

The Hog is with his peers

He looks up to see his brothers

Friends and fathers all around

And looks down to see the baited hunters

Battered on the ground
