Occupy the Octopi – a poem

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!
