Excerpt From Love at Sea

- author unknown


...Then the pop-eyed cook took a pop-eyed look,

And he saw what we came to see.

The courtship swoon by a midnight moon

Of an Octopus he and she.

They kissed on the lips and the slithery hips,

They kissed on the suction cups. 

And they bobbed in the brine like a ball of twine 

Til at last the bosun ups

And he shouts, "I'm Dutch, but I never saw such

Sweet love on Valentine's Day!"

Then arm in arm... in arm... in arm...

The Octopi swam away.

(No 'arm intended)
