5. Octopus Song

Occo-pusses never be in the su-u-un,

he sings over and over
with arms stretched wide,
operatic visage,
vibrato in full effect.

The spelling and grammar will come later.
The passion, the lyricism,
the use of metaphor
tapped directly from the
are here

Jack is four years old,
and he is singing me
his song
first thing
in the morning.
