Piggy's little drops of blood

This is a jingle I wrote for selling pig's blood, as a part of creative writing event in Felicity '09! :D I made up the details on my own.

Straight from the source,
makers of Ham & Pork,
For the tired and the restless,
or a person in pain,
comes to the rescue,
Piggy's little drops of blood,
For the broken hearted souls,
lying on a lonely lane,
comes to the rescue,
Piggy's little drops of blood.
Tangy in taste,
the lovely feeling lingers on,
from frown to a smile,
awesomeness all the while,
taste a drop or two,
see the change it brings in you,

For now and ever,
always to the rescue,
Piggy's little drops of blood.

This is eerie. Gives me goosebumps. Makes you feel guilty for a moment that it's a live animal you're killing and eating.

It's like using a cute little calf for a beef advertisement.

I hope you didn't intend to make it comic!

@srijan: Thanks :)
@aniket: The topic was about "selling pig's blood"... what else could I have written? I did think of writing about paint and distemper using pig's blood but didn't get many lines for that :(

Advertising/TV Commercial jingles are supposed to short and catchy! I would not be surprised if there is a standardized average-word-limit for a commercial jingle. A nice set of verses is all I would say :) I suppose even the organizers were ignorant of this fact. How would a poem (such a long one) market a freakin' product, nobody has time to listen to such stuff. Even if you give me some money to listen, I may not.

PS: don't be offended re, you know me :D

Well written...but I can't help feeling weird about the choice of topic.

@neuron: I agree. :)
@Gautam: Yeah, the topic was weird, maybe to make things difficult! :D
