"I am the Pig" by Ann Turner

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 fast enough
or sees enough
to keep it from

This poem relates to the book "Speak" because it is like Melinda is the pig and Andy Evans is the wolf. Andy knows that if he keeps scaring Melinda that she will not say anything about what he did to her. Andy shows up every where that Melinda is, makes her afraid. Melinda is afraid he will do it again. Melinda can not tell anyone so No one can help her.Melinda wanted to hide, never come out. When she was strong enough she became the wolf and Andy was the scared Pig.
