I Saw A Hippopotamus
I saw a Hippopotamus going to the fair,
wearing pink pyjamas with a bow up in his hair,
he was followed by a Zebra who was wearing bright
blue socks,
a Chimp and a Koala bear, wearing matching frocks,
they climbed into the teapots looking...Read More

Poem I Prepared Reminded Me of Ogden Nash

Rhinoceros may be related  to hippopotamus;
Synonymous and anonymous in a metropolis;
Both together do live;
Each other bath give;
Thought appeared to be purely preposterous.

Have you been laughing yet,
Read my poem with regret;
Live in rafter,
Or...Read More

Harry Hippo was not hairy
And not hip he would admit
He had no use for people
Until he used one, for a sit

It felt so good to his behind
A nice cushion it would create
His big butt did not hurt them much
But then...Read More

Who was sick in the hypothalamus

In the swamp he slept

And open mouth he kept

Because he thought he was a hippopotamus

Deep down in the water sits
The key for you and me, it is not a myth
Now go...Read More

Behold the hippopotamus!*
She's huge from top to bottomus.**

On stubby little legs she stands
And grazes 'cause she has no hands.

Such as Jenny Craig or rubber bands.

Pop did not stop he was a fool,
Thomas was a donkey, a maul.

Hip worked hard always first to start,
Pop lived his...Read More

When I was a kid and I got the croup,
My mama would make me chicken soup.
Then as a special treat just for me,
She'd add an animal cracker menagerie.

Lives in muddy ponds
Since no one wants its
Considerable teeth
It is left alone
To harass innocent tourists
Who assume
It is a river horse 
And can be caressed.
