Funny Animal Poems

Meet Percy Bacon

How pleasant to meet Percy Bacon

     Whose skin is as pink as a pig’s,

And, unless I am very mistaken,

     His ears are a little bit big.


His squinty black eyes are so tiny,

     Yet his vision is perfectly clear.

His snout (sorry nose) is quite shiny,

     But his feet look decidedly queer.


Percy’s misunderstood by so many,

     For he’s clever and rather sedate,

But *I’ll bet you a pound to a penny,

     He’ll end up on somebody’s plate.

* I'll bet you a pound to a penny'

To be convinced that something is very probable 

or likely (to happen or be the case). Primarily

heard in UK.
