The Kraken is a legendary giant sea monster in Scandinavian folklore. In reality, it is deeply misunderstood...
Impersonating islands is my game,
according to the sombre lays of doom ‒
my nostrils sit like caves upon the main,
enticing sailors to an icy tomb.
If that's a game, then it's not very good ‒
who uses nostrils for nefarious ends?
Like many who have been misunderstood,
I've only ever wanted to make friends.
My list of names runs like a dreary jig ‒
hafgufa, sea-mist, crab-fish, twisted one ‒
but you can call me anything you dig,
as long as we have wild aquatic fun.
While fishes frolic on the foamy brine,
come waltz with me ‒ we'll have a Kraken time!
