George Hunter


A very huge beast is the hippo
In size he almost doubles
He likes to fart in his bathtub
And bite at all of the bubbles.
He seems an amicable creature
When I see him at the zoo
But in the wild he’s quite irascible
And likes to chew up a native or two.
He has ferocious tusks
In a mouth so large you could bowl
And a story was told to me once
How he tried to swallow
A person whole.
They attempted to pull him out
And all was going well
When the hippo chomped down
And the upper half slid down his maw
Like an oyster from its shell.
So beware the mighty hippo
He looks so obese and so dour
But don’t let that fool you, ole chap
He can run forty miles per hour.
So it’s better to just leave him be
Munching on the vegetation
He’d rather be cool and calm
And doesn’t like any agitation.
