Breathes there a pig with soul so dead

My wife and I are reading a Freddy book entitled Freddy and the Bean Home News This was the book that introduced me to Freddy the Pig and that awful poetry of his. Freddy takes a poem by Sir Walter Scott and rewrites it for the animals. This gem is not included in The Collected Poems of Freddy the Pig

Breathes there a pig with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said:
“This is my own, my native pen?”
Whose heart has ne’er within him burned
As home his trotters he has turned
From wandering in the world of men
