"Friend in the Cloud"

My hippopatamus yawns in boredom
Upon his bed of aspen trees
Maybe he is ready to eat something
Is he really hungry
Or just sleepy from the gentle breeze
Next time I go to Africa
My swim will be with his son
He escaped from the zoo
And successfully used the sky
To reach his place of birth
Eventually he will smile
After he realizes he is home once again
