Ogden Nash

Recently discovered the poetry of Ogden Nash. My favorites are The Octopus and The Eel:

The Octopus
Tell me, O Octopus, I begs
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus;
If I were thou, I’d call me Us.

The Eel
I don’t mind eels
Except as meals.
And the way they feels.
