275. Queen Of The Seas
Ran is respected and feared by all those who sail on her ocean.
From the shore she is cursed, on the water she hears only their pleas,
She takes down those who dishonor her, saves those with devotion.
Ran feels right at home in the deepest and murkiest of ocean waters,
The Sea Goddess lives in a submerged world in a watery golden hall.
It was there with Aegir, her husband, she had nine pretty daughters,
Who constantly stroke enticingly up against each and every sea wall.
Those who fall into her net, are pulled under, and struggle to swim,
They quickly lose their strength, and grow numb before they drown.
Now that they are in her grasp, they become just an amusing whim,
Then Ran watches her daughters wash over them as they float down.
Through the water the Queen of the Seas can smell their fresh blood,
She can taste their sweet flesh as it mixes with the cold ocean waters.
Ran smiles, a wicked smile, as her victim settles in the thick sea mud
Then gathers around the bloated body for a feast with her daughters.
