Stranger Aeons
The madness of the sea
Rises from his watery grave

The thing that should not be
Calls and you cannot be saved

This intimidating being
Of cephalopodic appearance

Will not spare your life
Or give you any clearance

Yet you carry on to find it
This being so reclusive

But you will come to learn
He is not so elusive

In His house he waits dreaming
For your doomed arrival

This monster anxiously awaits
For another revival

In the mad city he rests
Just to arise at your sight

Only his cell will emerge
As you tremble with fright

Your curiosity will cost you
But not on this day

As somehow you managed
To scurry away

And as you return home
And the beast returns to recluse

You realise it wasn't worth it
Curiosity just has no use.

Face the thing that should not be... I must make a note to obtain some HP Lovecraft novella.


I loved it.

Spared today but what about tomorrow? Curiosity isn't always the best policy. What is this beast from the sea? At first I thought you were talking about a Tsunami.
