3 Octopus Hearts- a poem


blue octopus heart blue octopus heartblue octopus heart

Octopus floated,
Under the sea,
Crying her eyes out,
Why would that be?
sad octopus
Her boyfriend had written,
A letter with ink,
ink bottle
A letter as cold,
As an ice hockey rink…
He said it was over,
He’d found someone new,
And so she was crying,
What else could she do?
It hurt really bad,
In all of her parts,
But the pain was the worst,
In all 3 of her hearts…

What is an ocotopus?
Octopuses are cephalopod mollusks that live in oceans all around the world.
Octopuses have 8 legs (tentacles) that are lined with suction cups.
An octopus body is soft- it has no skeleton, the only hard part being its beak-like mouth.
Octopuses have 3 hearts- one main heart and two smaller hearts by its gills.
All octopuses have venom, but only the blue-ringed octopus is potentially deadly to humans.
Octopuses have a number of ways to protect themselves. They are fast swimmers that can hide in small spaces. They can also eject ink from their bodies that help them hide and also make it harder for predators to smell them.
Octopuses are considered to be the most intelligent of all invertebrates.
