The Sad Hippo
Most of us have never seen a really bad zoo,
But they are indeed out there, just like bad Santas.
Kazakhstan, free from the Iron hand of the Soviets,
Landlocked, in turn land locking some poor beasts.
On a rare good day the smell of water from the
Caspian Sea is carried over on a teasing breeze.
On the bad days, the children of men conquered by
Mongol hordes in the 13th century laugh, point at you.
