Tattooed forehead sweats
Of the lemonhead sailor
With tentacle legs grasping
Pencil thin cane with a spade at the top
He looks for a way out
Of the black and white shallow tank

Moss green sparrows with
Dragon eyes appear sullen
While resting on the tentacles
A blue ladybug walks past
An anchor tattoo on the upper leg

Dragonflies on steroids
Fly around like spies
To help the citrus mollusk
Find an escape route to leave
The sideshow act behind
For a new life in a sea of misfits
