Pink Piggy Cakes

Pink piggies like the ones in the farm

on a plate with instant charm

really tasty with their marshmallow noses

krafty icing with a number of poses

perhaps you’d be worried – about poor mr pig

in fact – when i tell you – you might do a jig

news is – i can tell you – that no pigs come to harm

king of his field – is still sat in the farm

Takeover



Goats taking over llandudno (print by inky from original photo by A.Stuart)

Salford (Via Llandudno) , 31st March 2020

A tale of Goats in the welsh town of Llandudno, written by inky,

inspired by an ITV News article :

The Goats are taking over

and they’re heading into town

they’re happy to play, no-one to chase them away

for their shepherd’s gone to ground

The cars have abandoned the tarmac

so they’re running down the road

chomping on box wood and flowers

in their new abode

The goats are taking over

whilst the people are indoors

they’re coming down from the mountains

the pastures and the moors

The humans are all in their houses

so the goats have left hills for their tea

munching on grasses and heather around

as happy as can be on the ground

Discovery

#inotherwords #discovery

What a thing to find!

expensive trinket lost in the hay

by the farmers daughter

shenanigans afoot

from last nights barn dance ?

Battery

#FOWC #Battery

Built from the farmers imagination

A number of hens laid a dozen eggs each

The effort was stored in tiny little cells

Then used to power the cooker that

Each egg was cooked on

Revolutionary! cried the farmer

Yelping as he consumed the hot fried eggs

Egg

Egg

every egg laid

at the chicken coop

has his or her day

 

served up as a

side alongside bacon 🥓

or three sausages

 

or combined with veg

to create a quiche lorraine

cooking slowly in oven

 

or whipped up in a

meringue or custard for a

tasty pudding

 

or left to grow up

and hatch 🐣 on the farm, to

make more eggs for tea

Piggy Pink

Piggy is much more than humble bacon

It’s common to many – you’re not mistaken

Generous to a fault is dear old pig

Got to be said – his heart is big

Yet to avoid the fate of the butchers hook

he will be found – tending your bank book

Neon carrot 🥕

#coloryourworld #neoncarrot #cyw

The latest batch of carrots 🥕

in farmer 👨‍🌾 Giles field

are the brightest vegetables to be seen

and not easily concealed

for these orange carrots 🥕 are so bright

their tops can be seen in the field at night

he said he got the carrot seed

from a friend from out of town

(who really was from planet 🌎 x

and heading homeward bound)

but whilst the carrots grew on field

at night they were to wildlife revealed

so rabbits 🐰 mice 🐭 and hares all

in farmer Giles field are having a ball…

with the gigantic bright carrots Giles is selling for cash

in cakes, soups and salads and even as mash!
