31 days: Oliver

Oliver the octopus
Oliver the octopus
doesn’t hop like Kanga does
nor sprint along like jaguar
nor trot like Clement wide and far.

His tentacles – let’s count them – eight
have many uses, quite first-rate
wiggling and swishing free
he can travel through the sea.

He can also hide in spaces
very small – the strangest places.
Watch the video below,
see for yourself; I told you so!
