On the Trail of the Lonesome Octopus

Like some sloppy and eight-legged snail,
Slimey octo creates quite a trail
With his tentacles gripping
And lamentably dripping,
Bring a mop and a great honking pail.

The 1919 serial Trail of the Octopus. Title by David "Dinner at Eight" Cairns. Over at his blog, Shadowplay, David is posting a serialized appraisal of this wild and woolly entertainment.
