David Lee, fondly known in Utah as the "pig poet" for his collection The Porcine Canticles (1984), tells the story of his seventh-grade teacher's poetry assignment from a Texas childhood:
She sent us to the li-berry to find a pome. We were supposed to change some words to make it our pome. I came back with "Hell hath no fury like a sow with pigs." She gave me an F. (Magid 1993, 1)
Today, when David Lee reads one of his pig poems to audiences around the state, they chuckle and applaud.
