This Little Piggy


This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home.
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
This little piggy went "Wee! Wee! Wee!"
all the way home.

History:


The song is normally counted away on a kid's fingers or toes. Thus, civilization has given the digits the personae given in the song. The intermediate toe can be said to be the piggy who "had roast beef" for instance, without counting away the entire song. Both championship and scheme of Agatha Christie's Poirot original Five Little Pigs (1942) relate to this verse.
