(With thanks to Helen, who has given me the means to get caught up)
Free verse by Maxwell McDowell
A starfish, however hard it tries,
Will always be undigested.
Does the starfish make you shiver?
The percoid fish that's really herbivorous,
Above all others is the damselfish.
A damselfish is carpophagous. a damselfish is omnivorous,
a damselfish is phytophagic, however.
The water that's really cunning,
Above all others is the ocean.
Now ingenious is just the thing,
To get me wondering if the ocean is artful.
