I love to sit and occupy
My many friends, the Octopi.
Sudoku is their favourite game
Though they love Charades about the same;
Of course with tentacles 1 to 8
The game can go on very late;
A book, a film, a show, a song
The Octopi rejoice to play along;
But never seek to play “I Spy”
With cunning, clever, Octopi.
They’ll catch you out with obscure clues
And shout out, “Suckers!” when you lose.
Of course, the last laugh shall be mine
For “Octopuses” is the plural
I think you’ll find!
