If Pig Could Fly

I once knew a pig that tried to fly
I really do not know why he would try

He tried with balloons tied to his back
But they came off as he tied them too slack

He tried with a rocket to reach for the sky
But was far too heavy and crashed into his sty

He tried like a plane with a great big wing
But just fell to the ground the silly thing

He tried with some feathers just like a duck
but they fell apart that was just his luck

He tried with a kite and waited for the wind to blow
But just landed with a big thud on the ground below

So he decided staying on the ground would be good
Now he is a happy pig just playing in the smelly mud
