The Last Pig, poetry by Bartholomew Barker at
Porky Pig's Feat (1943)

The Last Pig

The Last Pig

written by: Bartholomew Barker



Long after his cousins
have all been consumed,
Porky Pig will remain.
The celluloid may die
but his image, beamed
to my childhood television
on weekday afternoons,
now travels the galaxy—
straight man with no pants,
just a bow-tie and jacket,
stuttering to The End.
