  • Mike the Meek Truffle
    by David Glen Larson

    Fat and pink,
    That was the best description
    Of Herald the Pig.
    He had a great big snout
    With a perfect sense of smell
    Which served him well
    As he was a truffle pig.

    Black and round,
    That was the best description
    Of Mike the Truffle.
    He'd never left where he grew,
    In the ground beneath the oak,
    Which served him well
    As no pigs had yet found him.

    At least none that lived.

    Once upon a time
    Mike had lived a double life
    Back when he was known
    Not as Mike the Meek Truffle
    But as Mike the Butcher,
    A name he'd forgotten
    Until Herald came sniffing around.

    The pig never had a chance.

    David Glen Larson
