17. jaanuar - tõnisepäev

Respect for the holy pig
2004/2008 by sculptor Mati Karmin

On the barrel:

Pea kinni sõber- vaata oma venda
ta paigal on ei torma ega lenda
ning inimesest just kui rohkem teaks
kuid inime peab ennast kavalpeaks

Teist püüab seljataga maha müüa
verd imeda ja närve läbi süüa
siis äkki mõtleb halba teha heaks
on siga ausam- alati jääb seaks.

Pig is honest, would always remain
