Re: Krakens, Giant Squid & Sirens

Bummer .

No Boobies.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

The Kraken


Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides: above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumbered and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant fins the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by men and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

Re: Krakens, Giant Squid & Sirens

Sailorboy, if you are going to avoid the sirens, krakens, etc, why hte hell are you going cruising? They are some of the better aspects of this life... I guess you must like the other aspects, like blocked heads, scraping barnies, varnishing brightwork, carrying heavy loads on hot days over bad paths... you know, cruising...

Get your priorities straight, man!

Jim
