Octopus with **8** legs,

Sat on a sandy dock,

Thinking having **10** legs would really, really rock!

She called her friend,

A two-legged beast,

Who joined her on the dock,

Said sit here,

On my head,

Then we’ll really rock!!!

We now have **8** plus **2** legs,

‘Cause ten legs really rocks,

The only problem we might have,

Is where to find **10** socks!
