My Pet Vampire Squid

My Pet Vampire Squid

Mom says no way
but I know she doesn’t mean it.
A Vampire Squid is a perfect pet.
See, I know all about them.
I know they’re
not quite squid
not quite octopus
their tentacle tips glow in the dark
like eyeballs
and when they’re afraid
they wrap themselves up in their
umbrella tentacles
like a long, dark cloak.
I know just how they feel
and how to take care of them too.
All you need is a large tank
in a dark room
and a little brother
with plenty of blood.

    1. Hi Alex!! Yes, there is indeed such a thing as a vampire squid! Crazy huh? But I think their name has more to do with their blood color than blood lust :)
