The Hippolollypops


The Hippopotamus is a mighty large critter.
Walks to and fro on the bottom of the river.
He frequently comes up just to take the air, and,
Eats a ton of food a month, which is hardly fair.

Now the Hippo's BMI marks him clearly obese.
His weight control problems may never cease.
He is now on a low-carb, Adkins fat-free diet.
If you live in the zoo, you might also try it.

William's Whimsical Words:

Do you think this Hippo looks concerned about his body image?
