The Eel and the Squid

The Eel and the Squid

An electric eel came swimming by
And touched his tail to a tentacle.
A squirming squid gave a shocking cry,
For the tail of the eel was electrical.

“Which one did I touch, for to my eye
Each tentacle of yours is identical?”
“It’s the crisp one that you tried to fry;
But I’m fine, though it’s a calamaricle.
