If you’re scuba diving
I may make you change your course!
For few fish look as strange as me
The delightful, little, seahorse!

For when you come upon me
You will see a pretty sight!
I look a bit just like a horse
But I can swim upright!

And just below my thin, long nose
Is my prehensile tail
And all “prehensile” really means
Is that I can grab things with that tail!

For to be completely honest
We seahorse are poor swimmers!
My grabbing-tail helps keep me still
When I go catching dinner!

And if you need a favorite fish
I know who I’d endorse…
Pick me! The pretty seahorse!
I’m the finest fish, of course!
