At last the Kraken awakes in waves
Of towering seas and air that shakes.
A hungry colossal octopus drops
Like a cephalopod sea-monster
Into your dreams of Norse sagas
Of giant size casting cliffs into seas
Roaring fiery folklore like screaming
Yarns and pen and wash drawings
Of giant squid inking their way into
Nightmares of sheer size bamboozling
Exhausted eyes into seeing the dread rise
From the watery graves of the watery dead
Listen to the klaxon, full steam ahead.
