The old days

Before the internet

my brother and I

would sometimes kill the sunset hours

by tossing around the old pig skin.

Other times we’d sneak out to the barn after dark

put on the old pig skin

& scare the living bejeezus

out of the orphan piglets.

  1. So, then, that was you and your brother, eh? I’ve nightmares to this day about human sized pig-men trying to eat me. This is one little piggy who runs all the way home every time he sees a Porky the Pig cartoon.

  2. Human pig men … perish the thought! And those poor little piglets! Still, you obviously have happy memories of tossing around old pig skins. What did you smell like afterwards? A bit rife, I should think. lol

  3. You quite seriously crossed my mind as a blog to tag for the love vs hate. I rarely do tag’s but couldn’t resist this one! So I am going to tag you into my post. If it’s not up your alley no worries!
    (But I’d love to see what you come up with if you accept the tag..) 😀

  4. Nice! Love the unexpected “turn” in this piece! You take it from good old fashioned “wholesome” to creepy! You really do have some serious poetic chops!
