This is a nonsense poem about animals on a farm who are talking to each other and not wanting to be killed. It is not meant to be too serious about it, but it is really just a few popular sayings involving animals that gave me the idea for this.
All the creatures spend their time
Down on Animal Farm
They are totally convinced that
They will come to no harm.
They all see a little pig
Being taken away by the farmer
But it's okay because he loves her
So he won't be going to harm her.
Animals were talking amongst themselves
One chicken said this isn't funny
But i've heard the farmer doesn't love us
But kills us for food and gets money.
Even though these animals weren't there
That really put the cat amongst the pigeons
It's fair to say that if they could drive
They'd all be starting up their engines
The whole place was in uproar
All the animals were sickened
From the tiniest, youngest lamb
To those who were no spring chickens
Mad chaos in the farmyard
Total panic in the fields
Running around like headless chickens
Hoping it wasn't real.
One pig was heard saying to another
Get your passport. I don't intend to die
We might be able to escape on a plane
I've heard the phrase pigs might fly.
