Those creatures great and small

I think you really must excuse
The doleful hippopotamuse
He seethingly resents the fuss
About the hippopotamus
The ‘mus is fat and cross and grey
And lies about in mud all day
The ‘muse is more your kind of thing
Artistic and he loves to sing
So mus and muse live out their fight
You’ll hear them shout till late at night
But on one thing the two agree
No rhino boasts their pedigree!!!
