Haiku-riddle tag

it has four short legs
two eyes and a pinkish skin
and a curly tale.

the next one must start
with the answer of last one
in this case like this:

pigs like it so much
because it is disgusting
we sling it to God

etcetera...

Excrement in loads
and trains and ships and lorries
bless the fertile Earth

Earthly causes rest
come into my wilderness
truth lures you to me

high horse fundament
rising suns in conjunction
tiger flame, yoga fire
Thunderbolt steers all things.

When I climb mountains
I descend an endless drop
on rungs of seashells.
