There once lived an octopus Paul,
Who loved a good game of football.
And when asked to choose,
Who would win, who would lose,
He was oft right, as you would recall.
Then one day when he wouldn't flatter
The Germans, who lost, there was chatter
Among fans that the dude
Octopus Paul be stewed
And then served up as seafood platter!
So many people want to cook the poor chap, too bad!
