HIPPO by Lin Floyd

Ever seen a hippopotamus
They are huge and enjoy the water
Whether in the zoo or a jungle
It helps them get around easier

So big they can’t see their behind
You don’t want to get in their way
Or you could be squashed into a pulp
Or stomped into the mud like clay

They like to find plants that grow
Nearby and they eat lots and lots of
Whatever is available, so watch what
You eat or you could become a hippo
