A pory!

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Flippant.





A prediction I made received several flippant remarks from my mates.

‘When pigs fly!’ chuckled one.

‘Actually, pigs can fly’ I told them. 


A bump in the night

gave me a fright.

I jumped out of bed

and turned on the light.


Guess what I found

outside my door?

A confused-looking pig

Prostrate on the floor!


I looked to the sky

and realised that I

could prove to my friends

that pigs really fly!

    One little piggie flew to town, one little piggie just fell down … 😉 Isn’t that how it goes? 😉 FUN!

    Of course pigs can fly. They’d just rather not unless they’ve a wee bit of beverage. 🙂 Well done and great fun, Keith.

    Poor piggy! Maybe it can fly but its navigational skills need some work!
    Always fun to read you, Keith
