A contemporary nonsense poem based on things children say…

The octopus goes around the white box

Spinning and whirling and stealing socks.

Mother always finds odd socks

Octopus… sock monster, he rocks!

    Oh – so it’s an octupus is it? Wait till I get my hands on him. He’s nicked a load of my socks too!

    Isn’t it the truth? He’s a monster all right.
