A picture of the underwater world

quorums of fish meet up in view of human eyes

under temperature controls

as schools of fish travel around

richly seeded beds of coloured gravel

in search of the fish food, hidden

under each pebble and on each sunken artifact

moving quickly past the glass

Something on the seabed

enjoys the fare the simple algae provide

as the sea grass grows under their feet

something like what you’d see on the moors enjoys a feast

hopping around the sea bed and

eating his greens…much like a similar beast

existing above the water

perhaps that’s why he’s got a similar name

The Mancunian Octopus

#CFFC #Octopus #Underwater #Sea

He swam from tropical waters

and landed in our seas

rescued by a trawler

from being a seagulls tea

The boatmen stored him carefully

as they made their way to the dock

a wildlife officer would come on board

at the entrance to the lock

Far too risky to put back in the waters

so they took him to a kind of zoo

“The Sea Life Centre” near Old Trafford

Travelling down the M62

And the keepers they took care of him

and made sure he was watered and fed

as he found a spot in the waters

and headed off to bed
