A whimsical poem on octopus shoe-shopping…

The Octopus (16/06/11)

An octopus I can excuse,
For owning quite so many shoes,
But still I cannot fathom why,
Some women act like octopi!

Alas! ‘Octopus’ is a Greek word, and so the plural should really be ‘octopuses’ (anglicised) or ‘octopodes’ (Greek)

‘Octopi’ would only work if it was a Latin word…which it isn’t.

Yours pedantically, etc etc
