The Tale of Two Swine

There once lived two swine named NinjaPiggy and Trend.

They were similar in every way, except the later had a taste for the high-end.

This is the tale of the automobiles they bought

and how their purchases impacted much more than just their trot.

Every five years Trend upgraded his car and traded-in,

while NinjaPiggy made each car last for ten.
