A Pig is never to Blame

A Pig is never blamed by Babette Deutsch

A pig is never to blamed in case
he forgets to wash his face.
No dirty suds are on his soap,
because with soap he does not cope.
He never has to clean the tub
after he has had a scrub,
for whatever mess he makes,
a bath is what he never takes.
But then, what is a pool to him?
Poor pig, he never learns to swim.
And all the goodies he can cram
down his gullet turn to ham.
It’s mean:
keeping clean.
You hardly want to, till you’re very big.
But it’s worse to be a pig.
