The pig was in the midst of reiterating his prayer for an umpteenth time when God’s gruff voice broke in on his consciousness.
“What do you want, pig?”
The pig was startled. At first, he was speechless, but then he managed to stammer, “Is… is that You, God?”
“It’s Me. What do you want?”
“O Lord, I want to be a horse,” said the pig, excitedly. “Please make me a horse!”
This was impossible. The pig could not be a horse. What would the farmer say if he came outside the next morning and found a horse in the pigsty?
In this collection of Once upon a time stories for adults, Peter Gillies tells tales of pigs and horses, angels and gods... and mice & men.
