U3A Writing: The Hippo Dancing Inside Me

Elwyn Frankel's nervous anticipation is leading to a merry old dance.

Thereís a hippo dancing inside me,
heís just rearing to get out.
Heís got my tum all upside down
Of that there is no doubt.
My ribs are sore from his kicking
and when he does the stomp
itís really more than I can bear
heís having such a romp.
This is all because of something
to which Iíve said okay -.
I have to make a speech tonight
my nerves are getting away.
Thatís why that great big hippo
with his awful hobnailed boots
Is dancing in my tummy
and he thinks it such a hoot!
