HEPHZIBAH, MY HIPPOPOTAMUS
I'd really love to tell the world
About my hippopotamus,
But the only rhyme I found for her
Was some word called "xylotomous".†
† Boring, isn't it ? Well, yes, actually it is. You see, a woodpecker is called a xylotomous bird. It means "wood boring". It's still boring, though.
