Christian Cardona 7th period
There once was a hippo who wanted to fly --
Fly-hi-dee, try-hi-dee, my-hi-dee-ho.
So he sewed him some wings that could flap through the sky --
Sky-hi-dee, fly-hi-dee, why-hi-dee-go.
He climbed to the top of a mountain of snow --
Snow-hi-dee, slow-hi-dee, oh-hi-dee-hoo.
With the clouds high above and the sea down below --
Where-hi-dee, there-hi-dee, scare-hi-dee-boo.
And he flipped and he flapped and he bellowed so loud --
Now-hi-dee, loud-hi-dee, proud-hi-dee-poop.
And he sailed like an eagle, off into the clouds --
High-hi-dee, fly-hi-dee, bye-hi-dee-boop.
And he leaped like a frog and he fell like a stone --
Stone-hi-dee, lone-hi-dee, own-hi-dee-flop.
And he crashed and he drowned and broke all his bones--
Bones-hi-dee, moans-hi-dee, groans-hi-dee-glop.
He looked up at the sky and looked down at the sea --
Sea-hi-dee, free-hi-dee, whee-hi-dee-way.
And he turned and went home and had cookies and tea --
That's hi-dee, all hi-dee, I have to say.
I think the poem means you cant tell what is going to happen. You could chicken out something bad can happen or you can succeed
Why I think he wrote this poem? I think he wrote this poem because a long time ago he was deep sea diving and he got lost in the ocean and he only had one hour of air left in his tank. So he went up to the top of the water and waited until the SHARKS came.Then right be for one could bite him a hippo came out of the ocean with wings and saved him. The next day he woke up and he had just hit his head on a rock and fainted.
