Presidential campaign: Run to Save your Bacon

By Annie Shepherd for The Parisian Post.

Week ending 3rd March 2011. The Paris Agricultural Show closes. Greece still doesn’t have full support from the EU before bail-out; unemployment rising; bankers still getting bonuses; Sarkozy and Hollande both pledge to save the steel plant at Florange in the presidential campaign.

This little piggy went to Market, this little piggy stayed at home,

this little piggy bet on bonds going down while another little piggy lost hope.

One bigger piggy got fried in Greece; a Big Fat Piggy bought the banks

kicked all the piglets out, filled his piggybank

choc-a-block with bets on the euro and the pound.

All the little piglets came and blew and blew and blew

until his piggybank fell down and smashed on the ground.

And then the jobless count went up, the factories closed down

and all the little piggies had no way to turn around

everywhere a pigsty and no money for a home.

Sarko and Hollande come flapping onto stage

“I’ll buy the steel, Florange will live, vote for me today!”

But pigs won’t be duped because pigs are wily too

so: this little piggy went to Market …
and this little piggy went wee wi wee wi all the way to Beijing.

>> REFERENCE (the original: a poem told to babies while counting their little toes)
This little piggy went to market
this little piggy stayed a home
this little piggy had roast beef
this little piggy had none
and this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home.
