He was snow white with blue rings
and this he said to me:
"Your leg my dear, is very nice
I think that I might stay."
But I shook my head smiled
gently shooing him away.
"Ah, you'd rather like it
if I were closer to your ear?"
The beast thought I had not heard him
and climbed 'round my waist and rear.
"Is this better love? Do you hear me now?"
I shook my head again.
But before I could protest his journey
He shimmied up to my chest.
"Sweetheart," he gently stroked my face
"could you be hard of hearing?"

The young blue eyes of the smallest, kindest Link explored the waters behind the thick glass of the fish tank at the Lakeside Laboratory the Links were visiting for the day.
Vio, the boldest and brightest Link of the five, decided that a little lesson on ocean life would help them on their travels just in case they run into a sea monster, then they'll know how to defeat it. Their shadow, who is...Shadow, instantly agreed to Vio's idea to visit the Laboratory, and threatened the other Links to go too. That was no surprise, Shadow always seems to be on Vio's side...

never would you find a group of cynics
as depraved as those in mutagenics
who created the octopus cat.
A collection of men from our fair city
all thinking themselves to be so witty
that they grew from scratch this evil kitty
the horrible octopus cat.
It looks at you with knowing eyes
is deaf to all your frightened cries
a creature you had best despise
this menacing octopus cat.
It crawls on eight disgusting tentacles
each of them tattooed with pentacles
be wary of the dread cylindricals
of the deadly octopus cat.
And should you hear within its jowls
the beginnings of its feral growls

ITS SO FUCKING HISTERICAL

the little octopus lives legions deep under the sea, down in a place called echo grove.
echo grove is very dark, because the sun has to travel so far to reach it; and there are not many creatures who call it home. certainly, some might say it is a very lonely place to live.. even with a school of fish passing through, and the odd anemone or two, it can still be very quiet. you or I might not like it, but then again, we are not made to live underwater.
the little octopus, however, loves echo grove for the very reasons that most people do not. you see, every day, the little octopus swims to and fro, traveling far away from his home. the littl
