Oceanaria Acrostic Nonet

Octopus are you happy in there

Captive to our view it’s not fair

Everyone stops to watch your

Antics, but are you happy

No one really knows

Arms flail about

Rings of blue

Ink runs

      Thanks Robbie. Aquariums are a wonderful chance to let us see sea creatures and for marine biologists to study them…. Yet I can’t help feeling for the creatures because they are captive. πŸ’œπŸ’œ

    Nicely written, Willow. I too feel bad for the octopus behind glass and any other caged creature.

    It’s a fine line between knowing if what we might learn and discover about our fellow creatures is worth their loss of agency in captivity.
