....Illinois, The Last Stop, as it's known,
where pigs no longer are allowed to roam,
Abe Lincoln asked for a writ of quietus,
to stop the swines squeal, and got a hush.
It was the last stop for the eighth circuit court,
when Mr. Lincoln was a lawyer, and not short,
the town has a statue of him and the pig,
rub the pigs nose for luck, is now the in jig.
Top: The Christian County Courthouse.
Middle: Mr. Lincoln and the pig, the only statue with Lincoln smiling.
Bottom: Jump! A local business.
