Hippo Poem.


I’ve Lost My Hippopotamus


I’ve lost my hippopotamus,


The situation’s weird.


One minute she was next to me,


Then poof! she disappeared.


It’s hard to lose a hippo,


For a hippo’s truly huge —


I’m sensing something fishy,


Some unsavory subterfuge.




I’ve searched and searched with no success,


I’ve yet to find a clue


To her status or location,


I’m unsure of what to do.


If you spot a hippopotamus


Where usually there’s none,


Please let me know, the odds are good


You’ve found my missing one.
