No!  I am not Lord Cthulhu, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant mollusk, a hammed up clam,
To advance progress, eat a crab or two,
Evince a wince, no doubt, or play the fool,
Existential, unessential, easy to confuse,
Full of pretense, a silly catawampous;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous –
But always your intrepid Octopus.

    Or maybe just a blob
    of ink
    Sometimes it's black
    Sometimes it's pink
    But still an octopus
    I think
