The floppopotamus is strange.

     It’s wings flap up and down.

It flies at speed across the fields

     And often lands in town.

 

The floppopotamus is weird:

       It's mystical of course,

But please don't ride one, I'd advise,

    For it's nothing like a horse.

 

This beast would likely carry you

      Right up there with the stars –

And goodness knows where you'd end up;

     It could well be on Mars.

 

The floppopotamus is shy

     So he’s seldom  ever seen –

But he's cousin to a hippo though.

    But with eyes of emerald green.

 

The floppopotamus is large

      And  children love him so –

But what do YOU think that's he's like?

     I'd really love to know.
