My Hippo Has the HiccupsRate this poem
From the book My Hippo Has the Hiccups
My hippo has the hiccups
and his hiccups shake the ground.
The floor is always rumbling
when my hippo is around.
I bought him at the pet store
But I missed a small detail.
I didn’t see the sign said:
“Hiccupotamus for sale.”
