Squid Tango

A squid and a whale tango in the waves via The British Library


‘Take care with my tentacles!’ the squid wheezed

But the whale was in a muddle and didn’t realise

Just how tightly she did squeeze.

Allemande left and a dip over to the right

The squid swallowed too much salt water

The dance just wasn’t going right.

Not so much a pas de deux as a pas de DON’T

The squid got twisted, the whale reversed

And gave up with a groan.

To tango in the waves takes grace and some finesse

Which is why in all the seven seas

It’s seldom seen, I guess.
