I believe that the hippopotamus has a spiritual link between humans and
god. Showing and teaching us very important life lessons that can greatly
impact our life. Also hippos have the power to summon UFO's with their
minds. I have witnessed this myself two years ago in Africa.

I thought that this was a pretty good poem.It shows how hippos look at us,
when we are looking and making fun of him. lol
