Tbe rhinoceros rolls in bis wallow And grunts in bis sloppy lair, As he loudly blows And reallv knows It has gone away from there. The elephant stiolls at bis pleasure Through tbe still and leafy wood, As be shakes his fat Since he's certain that It has disappeared for good. Tbe hippopotamus splashes Tbe sedgy swamp to a foam as he learns with joy From a nigger boy It bas truck tbe trail for home.
