Fluffy African Hippos

By Nathan Nantais, Age 12, Canada

Fluffy African Hippos,

too bad they aren’t real.

They’d be so cute and fluffy,

and that would make them appeal.


They would like to be snuggled,

and curl up on your lap.

They would eat buttered popcorn,

and drink from the tap.


They would be energetic,

and play fetch with a ball.

These hippos would also

run up and down the hall.


Since the hippos are fluffy,

they’d want to be groomed.

And of course, those cute hippos

would sleep in your room.


But of course these cute hippos

couldn’t actually have fur.

Hippos just aren’t fluffy,

but it’d be cool if they were.
