Cubozoa, Cnidarian Invertebrates

Cubozoa, cnidarian invertebrates Not the jelly you would put on a plate This cubed shaped medusae, so potent they are Once stung you will never move far Their venom so potent that rarely animals survive If humans are struck they are in fear for their lives Once it pumps nematocysts into the skin Be prepared for the pain to begin If caught in time this can be addressed Acetic acid has been found to be best But to look at this species it's hard to believe That they can end a life as it no longer breathes In her nature world has she gone to far That this beautiful blue, in oceans a star It all boils down to how oblivious we are If the truth be told, man is the monster

One for my favorites, James!!! Jellyfish stings are very painful, but what man has done to the ocean is even more so. I see a big win in your future with this incredible poem! Love, Carolyn
