The Hippopotamus

The Hippopotamus by Jack Prelutsky

The huge hippopotamus hasn’t a hair
on the back of his wrinkly hide;
he carries the bulk of his prominent hulk
rather loosely assembled inside.

The huge hippopotamus lives without care
at a slow philosophical pace,
as he wades in the mud with a thump and a thud
and a permanent grin on his face.
