I am the pig

I am the pig
and you are the wolf
waiting at the door
to gobble me up
and chew on my bones
then spit me out
and nobody is big enough
or see's enough
to keep it from happening.
By: Ann Turner

This poem reminds me of the book we read in English class in was called Speak. I think it relates to speak because of the words like I am the pig, I think that it means that she or he is helpless and nobody can see or help. Melinda Sordino is the main character in speak, she is very shy and doesn't have a lot of friends, this boy named Andy, tortures her at school and ruins her reputation. He lurks in the hallways like she is his prey, and nobody notices. This poem is amazing.
