  • Year of the Boar! Year of the bore! “Jeezum Crow!,” Year of the Pig!!!!

    Pig Poem
    Eddy – Smiles, he carved a bear.
    His knife was sharp, he carved with care.
    A mistake he made that was too big,
    His bear then turned in to a pig!

    Miss Piggy or Petunia?? Great save Eddie. A proficient portrait of porcine pulchritude if I've ever seen one.

            It's sure a great treat to get a rhyme from old Eddy.
            Normally he's a rock, so stable and steady.

            Eddy must have dithered: "Do I do a rhyme or a joke?
            To accompany my beautiful pig in a poke."

            But I think Eddy's problem is much more severe.
            He should have carved turkey at this time of year.

            But what do I know about carving a pig or a bear.
            I carve little farmers, and even there, without flair.

              Now here's a rhyme I didn't foresee
              In fact it just occurred to me
              Last year was Chinese year of the dog
              ​​​​​​​Danged if this isn't Year of the Hog.

                Very nice recovery there and I could use that on the very, very few and seldom mistakes I make on bears.

                A poem? No, I'll leave it to you and fellow professional "wordsmiths" here.

                  A fine carving Eddy, and a fine bunch of poetry too.

                      It seems to me that we might be turning it into the year of the "POET!"

                        Good save Eddy. You put lipstick on it and sure enough, its still a pig.

                          It's a fine looking pig. No one would ever know it used to be a bear if you hadn't told us.

                              Ode to Blinky Bill

                              Good things often come from whimsy and rhyme.
                              It adds years to your life. It makes all things sublime.

                              You amuse fellow carvers and cause them to laugh.
                              You buoy up your spirits; you become too clever by half.

                              Blinky Bill is a poet. He's caught the rhyme bug.
                              After reading his ditty, I'm giving his poem a nice plug.
