Technically is octopodes
And though you might say
Octopi, which is not right,
We know what you mean.

Slide, twist, squeeze and crawl.
An escape artist supreme!
How do we catch you?
As if eight or ten
Arms were enough to hold your
Smarter than tuna,
More fabulous than flounder
Yet you’re on menus?
You know you fascinate us
Don’t you? Admit it.
