Porcelain pig sitting on the highest shelf
Painted by hand so intricately
Its beauty and grace was astonishing
So many people at awe
But the porcelain pig turned out to be plastic
Dirt cheap
And made by a machine
You’re not who I thought you were
You’re not as great as everyone thought you were
And there are a thousand others like you
Stop lying because the only one you’re fooling
Is you.
