Henry the Hippo

Oh, Henry the Hippo, 'tis you I detest
Oh, Henry the Hippo, you incur wrath at best
Your reek of revulsion is the cause of your fame
I have no wish to participate in your idiot game!

I abhor you to an obscene degree
If only you had an ounce of dignity!
You strike a pose, as if you're so wise,
I internally weep and just close my eyes

Oh, Henry the Hippo, 'tis you I despise
Every time I look at you a small part of me dies
Your flesh is shedding the corpses of lice
How I wish to give your throat a vehement slice!

Once every drop of your blood has been bled
I'll shriek with pure joy, for the Hippo is dead.

Nothing can compare to this. your word choice and formatting skills are out of this world. Every word was touching, calm, effective. Every word contributing to the entirety of the poem. I love it, by far my fav.
