The Wondrous Walktopus

Pharyngula: Octopus Marginatus and Octopus Aculeatus

Where the drowsy oysters sloom
'Midst the deep pelagic gloom;
Where the laughing clownfish play
In a cave which, yesterday
Held a lusty pirate's eye,
Whose reflection of the sky
Made the ladies swoon and sigh--

Where the moon's pull on the tide
Waltzes herrings side to side,
Strides a gracious gentleman,
Scribing footprints in the sand:
Two feet down and six feet up,
'Cross the sand-whorls, hup-hup-hup;
With a gait both swift and loose
Comes the wondrous Walktopus!
