Let's sacrifice the hippo

We'll skin it alive

Once its slimy flesh is exposed

We can begin to cut

Start at the neck 

Stab its esophagus 

Let it twist and turn

Grunt and moan

Let it scream in agony

Only problem is it wont be heard

The scream will get stuck

In its chest

Dig deeper 

Slide the dagger forcefully

Let the salty liquid pour

Let the children stand under 

And bathe in its juice

Collect the guts and bones

Burn the organs

Throw them in the fire

Hear the sound reach your ears

Take a piece of the mystical cabbage

And chew until it’s all consumed

Close your eyes 

And put your head forward

Stick out your tongue 

Let the flesh sizzle

Hold in the tears

Walk to the dumpster

Cut off your tongue

And Disappear
