The Poem Farm: Amy Ludwig VanDerwater

One girl shared the fact that octopuses have three hearts, something I never knew. This fact stuck in my brain, and this morning inspired today's verse.

Reminds me of this one (although I like the above better):

Tell me, O Octopus, I begs,
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus;
If I were thou, I'd call me "us."
-- Ogden Nash
