“Octopus, Octopi,” by Eric Robert Nolan

Octopus, octopi
Your faux grammar is a lie.
Forget that shit you heard;
“Octopi” is not a word.
Here is what the truth is:
The plural’s “octopuses!”

This is dedicated to my pal, Carrie.  She detests pulpo as a dish, but I know she appreciates decent grammar.
