Prompt 19, Hour 19 – Show Some Respect!

Siphonophore Apolemia –

Ocean alien, you call me.


47 meters long, but perhaps longer.

I take space you did not consider.


You believed me to be a lazy thing;

floating; waiting for a catch –

and yet here I am the hunter you did not expect.


Yet you call me Long Stringy Stingy Thingy,

the Thing,

the Entity,

the Specimen,

the Ribbon-like Thing.


How the humans think they know!


Show some respect, damn it.
