Typewriter Rodeo: Feral Hogs

Each week, the Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on Texas topics.

Feral Hogs

they’re out there, roaming hungrily
fat and vicious beasts
snuffling up the landscape
looking for their feasts
leaving wasted landscapes
and their own waste behind
where’d they even come from
these porkers most unkind
ravaging our lone star state
uninvited guests
porcine interlopers
greedy filthy pests
and if you see one on your land
then i suggest you pen it
and that’s whether it came from
the Texas House or the Texas Senate
