Terrific Pig Pageant

Vivian Kirkfield’s -The #50PreciousWords Writing Contest
March 2 – 6
Kidlit writing contest – 50 words or less in honor of the incredible Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.

The photo is of a real event—Pig Pageant Austin. It was put on in February to raise funds for an onsite medical clinic for Central Texas Pig Rescue. They wanted to raise $20,000 during the 3 hour pageant. They fell short at only $4,000. There’s still time to help them if you’re a pig fan.

And now…my entry at 48 words:

TERRIFIC PIG PAGEANT

“French manicure. Purple, please,” snorted Pignelope.
“Oui,” clucked Becky.
Peck, peck, peck,
Pignelope…stand still!
Aaaaaaaaaaachhhhhuuu…aaaaaaaaachhhhhhuuuuuu…
feathers flew
straw dust too
“C’est la vie, Pignelope.
What will you do?”

Stand tall. Head high.
Attitude. Strut.

“The winner…Pignelope!
wearing purple feathers with a touch of straw-dust
—how chic and European.”

    1. Actually, Kaitlyn, I wrote it and then went looking for a photo to put with it. I had no idea there was such a thing as a pig pageant. When I found this photo and read the piece, I knew I had to promote their efforts. What a fun time they must have had and what a cute PB could be made from the pigs in this pageant. Thanks for reading Kaitlyn!
