Evidence that pork is a surprisingly apt subject for a sonnet

Did you hear about the Tesco sausage advert that got banned?  I wondered how all the piggy actors felt, having what might have been their only chance at fame dashed to pieces.  And I wrote a poem about it for Poetry 24.

Perhaps the only sonnet written about sausage



Percy Pig was devastated.  He'd already got his costume ready for the BAFTA award ceremony.

  5. Martin - I always aim to please.

    Frances - thank you! Thank you especially for the capital letters. They mean a lot.

    Annie - Hm ... you're not the first to say it.

    SmitandSon - I don't know why I'm writing this stuff anyway. I'm vegetarian! Thanks for commenting on Poetry 24 too.
