Octopus

Eight Plus Two Equals Ten
birds stopped singing
spring stopped springing
lady bugs painted themselves black
zebras left the jungle
without a look back
elephants packed their trunks
full of pollutants and gunk
crocodiles cried acidic tears that
burned their oil stained cheeks
the octopus sidled along
embarrassed and meek
swimming all wrong
tumbling over his two extra feet
he was left to ocean beg
defenseless with
his inkless pouch full of human dregs
birds stopped singing
