- THE KRAKEN -

How mysterious is he
 Who rides the tides beneath the sea?
A tentacled monstrosity
 With black and fearsome eyes…

He searches from his rocky lair
 For those who flounder unaware,
Then lurches upward to ensnare
 And hasten their demise…

Through open portholes tendrils creep
 In search of sailors fast asleep,
And drag them down into the deep
 Where no one hears their cries…

Around the hull the Kraken wraps
 And dooms it to a slow collapse
As hatches burst and mainmast snaps
 Until the vessel dies.
