‘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.
