We Have A Winner

Andy of Philadelphia narrowly beat out John Bligh for the title of "Bestest Hippo/Dik-Dik Poet."

Voting was fast and furious, with strong opinions being voiced on what exactly makes the awesomest hippo haiku or dik-dik limerick.

I am overwhelmed by the great love of and respect for poetry voiced by my audience. Or at least rendered speechless.

Andy won with this:

Throat looks bottomless
Folds of fat hide your cunning

And John nearly overtook Andy with this:

I think that I shall never see
a hippo sitting in a tree
And if I did, I turn and flee
Don't want a hippo crapping on me.

Congratulations to Andy on his new purse! Okay, my assumption is that it's for Moira, but let's leave it up to him.

Congrats to Andy! And if you make another hippo bag, I'd like one for my birthday!
