An Octopus Builds A House

Rating: 3.0
An octopus found a coconut shell,
And said, "This is a place I can dwell,
It makes a perfect floor.
Oh, look here's one more.
Now I have a dome,
For my beautiful home."

"It's perfect for me to hide, "
Saying, climbing inside,
"I'm so protected,
In these shells I've collected,
No shark will spot me.
They're my guarantee."

"Now I'll lie in wait,
To fill my plate.
I'm so wise,
To choose this disguise."

"There's my dish, "
He said, as a fish,
Just gave him the slip,
Swimming from his grip.

Said the fish, "I'm too clever,
For you to catch me ever.
Perhaps if you were a little thinner,
You might catch something for your dinner."
