"Hey!! It's Herbert the Hippo!!"

Herbert didn't like talking to the birds in the trees.

"Hey!! It's Herbert the Hippo!!"

Herbert didn't like talking to the fish in the seas.

"Hey!! It's Herbert the Hippo!!"

Herbert didn't like talking to the crabs in the sand.

"Hey!! It's Herbert the Hippo!!"

Herbert didn't like talking to the monkeys in the band.

"Hi, Herbert, how was school?"

"Good, Mom, everything was cool."

Herbert walked up to his room,

And shut the door,

He didn't really want to go on,

Not anymore.

He thought about the birds in the trees,

The fish in the seas,

The crabs in the sand,

And the monkeys in the band.

He smiled as he hefted the gun,

Letting his tears freely run,

Curling one pudgy finger,

Precariously around the trigger.

Before he found the nerve,

To do what he deserved,

He made sure to tilt his head,

So nothing would smear his favorite poster.....

Which was now his brother's, instead.
