That's All Very Well, But Do They Bite?

Pharyngula: Torquarator Bullocki

Observe, now, the enteropneust,
collar'd ocean worm,
ensconced in his blue-briny roost,
wobbly and infirm!

Here is his half-sphere'd proboscis,
here, his jellied tail;
rose hues, or bright cyanoses
flush his semblance pale.

See his jellied wings propel him
o'er thalassic dunes;
see the viands that impel him
expulsed in crescent moons.
