LITTLE BO-PEEP, THE REAL STORY
I know it's true because I read it in the paper!!
by Mother Goose
Little Bo-Peep has lost her pigs,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
Curling their tails behind them.
Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep,
And dreamt she heard them oinking;
But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
It was Boy Blue, there for their frequent boinking.
Then up she took her little crook,
Determined for to find them;
She knew her father would yell, for he couldn’t sell
Pigs with no tails behind them.
Then later that day, as the two did stray
Into a meadow nearby,
They saw curly parts of pig hide, hanging side by side,
All up on a clothesline to dry.
They heaved a sigh and she wiped her eye,
And ran as fast as a New Yorker;
She and Blue tried what they could, as pig herders should,
Playing “Pin the Tail on the Porker”.
Since this is the first time the true story has been published,
all of the cartoons deal with sheep:
