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.
