An Ode to the Cassiopeia Jellyfish

Original artwork by Luiginna Frederique

The jellyfish cannot sleep

Sleep, despite all odds, requires brains

The jellyfish cannot fight back

Fight, unsurprisingly, requires bones

The jellyfish cannot feel warm

Warmth, like most other things, requires blood

The jellyfish floats

It may be there, it may not

Simply by existing, it will contribute

Brainless, spineless, heartless

That, for today, must be enough
