Not Rearing Pigs!!!!!

Based on a letter to The Secretary of State for the Environment UK from a farmer


href="http://joanlally.lbbhost.com/JML-SIGS/1.HTML">JML Sigs

I received a cheque for three thousand pounds
For not rearing fifty pigs!
I laughed and I cried, I was aghast, so
I danced a little jig!

The difficulty is…. not knowing how
You keep a detailed account?
Of the pigs not reared in any one month,
It could be a large amount!

So I wrote and asked which pigs not to rear
Was it bacon or porkers as well?
Gloucesters and Saddlebacks were both rare breeds
As far as I could tell!

Do I get a large bonus for not rearing these?
Put me down for a hundred a night.
In six months or so a millionaire I'd become:
I won't put up much of a fight!
