Can you write a poem for me?

I need it for my English assignment.

It has to be a non-humorous poem using the word "tentacles" that doesn't suck.


Based on the quality of the answers, this is the best question I have ever asked. My teachers will be very pleased.

BG: I am so glad you grew tentacles in dental school and not the other thing that HP was talking about. Tentacles are so much more lady-like.

Update 2:

LOL to Deltron, Shirley and all the homework chastizers.

Update 3:

Too many BA's to count. I almost want to leave it to a vote, but that would be a cop out.

Everyone give yourselves a gold star.

    Oil swirls the ocean,

    Tar squirts upon the sea,

    Rorschach ink-blots,

    or defense poetry?

    Abyssal plain explorers

    prefer a color changing bod,

    a bilateral symmetry,

    and the arms of a Cephalopod.

    What's great about the molluscan

    with a weight meant to pull

    is it's mighty fountain pen

    and its every tentacle.

    Once upon on a star filled night

    While the moon was shining bright

    On the sea shore came a knight

    Gathering sea stars by moon light

    Stars clinging to rocks by tentacles

    Not to surrender without a fight

    Hairy scrapes them off like barnacles

    Bagging them up before daylight

    Then down the castle road again

    Over the drawbridge riding in

    Hoping no one notices where he's been

    'Cause eating sea stars is a sin

    Passing by ivy covered towers

    Fully in bloom with white flowers

    Suddenly his steed halts and cowers

    Standing in the path a great bower

    A scream high from the tower wall

    A damsel distressed about to fall

    Climbing the ivy he gives it his all

    In hopes of being invited to the ball.

    Take the long road to the bay,

    mEet me at the longest pier

    doNt forget to stop and pray

    cruTch and cross will be found here

    i'll wAit until the april moon

    is in eClipse, and not more

    i seek a Lighthouse claire de loon

    I remembEr a far green shore

    a distant Shore, we've met before.

    I think that was kind of cheating...but I say when all else fails go acrostic. Why people are impressed by these I do not know. At least you did not ask for a tanka.

    'Octopi' well they have arms

    that's short for octopuses to you

    Squid and cuttlefishes have more-

    arms and tentacles, they're blessed

    but the king of kings in tentacles

    that be the lion's mane jellyfish

    only 120 feet- give or take a foot

    Now while this poem may suck

    remember you got some schooling here

    So suck it up you tentacle man!

    I grew tentacles in dental school

    and sorry if it's cruel

    but I don't due no one's homework for them ha ha!

    Edit: I am a lady, Darlin'! Tentacles have dainty suction cups; those other things require athletic cups.

    A decapod named Mr. Chuck

    in old age became a eunuch

    the loss of his inky

    deflated his winky

    his tentacles don't even suck.

    Tentacle spectacles

    wrapped 'round my face

    a little bit of Lasik would

    lend me some grace.

    we grabbed it away from its group

    and the octopus put up a fight

    its energy taken for ourselves

    and it's tentacles were lovely spiced

    I once lost who I thought was a friend

    His tentacles reached out

    but I never felt doubt

    and was way surprised at its end.

    Hugs still HH
