Piggy Bank

by May 22, 2024 0 comments

I see it now: bulgy, white,

with spots of pink,

a slotted back

wistful eyes


I see it again: huge,

wobbling, as it comes

towards me

perched on the farm gate


And again, the edge of a holloway

near my house

on the market drove

still called Piggy Lane


And again, jowly,

in a dinner jacket

running the world

of stock and share


Same old piggy. Same old bank.
