Horses to Water, Pigs to the Trough

Horses to water Pigs to the trough

 

We want to make those horses drink

We need to make the horses drink

& we can’t

 

The pigs?

 

No one has to lead them to the trough

They get there all by their little old selves.

p.s. this is in no way meant to cast aspersions on pigs, hmmmm? The 4-legged variety, I mean.
