The Kraken is a giant squid
Who waits for prey once he's well-hid
Somewhere upon the ocean floor,
According to old sailing lore.
When he wants food, he'll seldom fail
To snag an unsuspecting whale,
And happy if he wins the fight,
He'll fill his belly for that night.
Ships that want to save their bacon
Must avoid the wily Kraken;
His tentacles will never slip
If they surround a passing ship.
He'll drag it down beneath the waves
Where other ships lie in their graves.
He's doom to ships that sail too slow;
Beware! The Kraken lurks below.
