Plucky Begs for Food

After marvelling for a while at his new talent,

Plucky began to think about his next meal.

Stephen didn't come to feed him, so Plucky

plucked up his courage and his bowl

and stood beside the road singing.

He didn't understand why cars slowed down

and then speeded up without anyone emerging to

put scraps into his bowl.

He added a little piggy dance to his act.

Still no response.

Because of all the exercise, he was feeling

hungrier and hungrier.

No one seemed to appreciate his act enough to feed him.

Where, oh, where was Stephen?

Plucky danced faster and faster.

He sang louder and louder.

Once again he found himself hopeful but worried.
