Great leviathan of the deep
Let us not impede your sleep
Stay forgotten beneath the waves
Slumber there within your cave

Dream of spears and sharpened swords
Of sailing ships with rotting boards
Remember all the blood you've shed
And all before you, those that fled

Feasting on our flesh and bones
Taking glee from fearful moans
Eating dismembered human parts
Driving fear into our hearts

But as you dream, those times have passed
Of your race, you are the last
Forgotten by the human race
Only known through mythic base

Do not rise great beast of old
Sleep till your scales begin to mold
Remain asleep and die away
Great dragon that was never slain
