‘The Pig’ by Roald Dahl

‘The Pig’

by Roald Dahl2015-03-18 13.27.09

“In England once there lived a big
And wonderfully clever pig.
To everybody it was plain
That Piggy had a massive brain.
He worked out sums inside his head,
There was no book he hadn’t read.
He knew what made an airplane fly,
He knew how engines worked and why.
He knew all this, but in the end
One question drove him round the bend:
He simply couldn’t puzzle out
What LIFE was really all about.
What was the reason for his birth…”

You can read the complete poem here. Roald Dahl was born on this day 100 years ago and there are still 4 more days to finish the Summer Reading Challenge!
