The Epithaph of Cow & Pig


Here lies Cow & Pig

Underneath a mound

Of blackest dirt piled up so high

O’er their bodies upside down.


It’s Halloween tonight and all

The spooks come out they’ve said,

To dance ‘round under the moon

And celebrate the Dead.


Check back tomorrow to find out

For this is what I’ve heard…

That Cow & Pig will rise again

From where they’ve been interred!


Happy Halloween San Juan Island!

    I live in town, but I am always amazed when I drive by on my way to Roche – what will the cow and pig be doing this time – Thanks for bringing a smile to my face!
