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 Ribbon-like Thing.
How the humans think they know!
Show some respect, damn it.
