277. The Hafgufa
A legendary sea creature known as the Hafgufa, ( "The Sea Mist" ).
When resting, this dangerous ocean monster sits on the deep sea floor,
It is a relentless hunter, a merciless killer, and a voracious carnivore.
This Kraken is so massive that its head sticks out above the surface,
Like an island it rises into the sunlight, the rest lies below in the abyss.
The Hafgufa lives for only two purposes, the creature breeds and it kills,
The worlds oceans are constantly polluted with all the blood that it spills.
When the Hafgufa hears up above the splashing of the waves upon a ship,
It rises up, grabs hold of the vessel, and with its tentacles it begins to rip.
The sea creature crushes the tiny ship' s hull, and pulls down the main sail,
Then it violently shakes the vessel forcing the unfortunate sailors over the rail.
For the hungry Hafgufa the tiny dragon ship and crew becomes quite a feast ,
This menace of the sea has quite an appetite, it is a horrible ocean beast .
When the Hafgufa is finally satisfied, and sent all the good men to their fates,
It sinks back down to the murky bottom, and there "The Sea Mist" silently waits.
