Hamster = Ham from a Steer?

I'm learning a lot about little creatures merely by writing a poem per day on them.

Hamsters, Hamsters

Hamsters are some kind of weird pet creatures.
Like with guinea pigs, I know not what they be.
They likewise seem lacking piggish features;
Their name alone suggests of pig to me.

But "hamster" also sounds refined for pig.
We're dealing with a category here
of the pig as a narcissistic prig,
with behaviour just a teeny bit queer.

Another bumpy ride along our lonesome highway. Keep an eye out for those detour signs. It's a muddy road ahead.
