Welcoming National Poetry Month

As promised, I'll kick off National Poetry Month with a poem from my poetry journal. This is an acrostic about a Hippopotamus. I don't write acrostics very often, but this one was fun to write.

Huge, grey beast
In the African river,
Pretending to be a
Polite, gentle giant
On his lumbering feet, but
Please take care
Oh, hippo watcher!
That big fella can get
MAD, when
Unwanted visitors
Show up!
