The Kraken Wakes (looks around a bit, breakfasts, and then goes back to sleep)

Cornflakes*

are the required breakfast

for a kraken

when it wakes.

It takes

a large bowlful

to even begin

to satisfy the craving

that a kraken has

when from its slumber it rises;

and, no surprises,

but it abhors the

snap, crackle, and pop

of humans

when into its maws they drop.

.

.

*other breakfast cereals are available, but the Kraken neither cares, nor worries that that is so.

Don’t awaken the Kraken

Don’t awaken the Kraken,

at least, not on a Monday morn;

he’ll be grouchy

and God-forsaken,

like the day that he was born;

and he won’t thank you

for your early call,

he’ll pop you in a pot,

and eat you up,

your family and friends,

yes, one and all,

which is far more likely than not,

so, don’t awaken the Kraken,
